|Fraction||Agnus Dei: from Mass for a Servant Church
The Latin title translates to "Lamb of God" - and the version we will sing for Lent we will sing in English. A beautiful and simple setting of this text ("Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us...."), new to our "Congregational Repertoire List" for this year. This is the clearest and best link I could find of folks singing - however, you will need to go to the 5' 44" mark to hear the Agnus, as this is the WHOLE Mass setting.

|Prelude||On “If thou but suffer God to guide thee” J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
The rather flamboyant, but brilliant, organist Diane Bish, introduces the organ she is about to play, this piece, and then plays the original Lutheran Chorale ("hymn") followed by this Chorale Prelude based on the tune.
