Sunday 19th July at 10.45am, Solemn Sung Mass, with a Presentation afterwards to Alex West to thank him for a splendid year as our Director of Music, and for the Recital Series he & Sophie organised which culminated in the exciting visit of VOCES8. Our best wishes for the future and hope to see them, and our leaving Scholars, back at St Mike’s from time to time. And, of course, there’s our Choir Trip to Germany still to conduct.
Mass Setting is Ludovico di Viadana’s “Missa L’Hora Passa”, but with reduced numbers the 6-part Palestrina “Tu es Petrus” seemed a bit ambitious, so the Anthem will be “Rejoice in the Lord alway” variously attributed to Redford, Mudd or Anon.
INTROIT. Omnes gentes. Ps. 47
O CLAP your hands together, all ye people: O sing unto God with the voice of melody. Ps. ibid. For the Lord is high and to be feared: he is the great king upon all the earth. V. Glory be.
GRADUAL. Ps. 34 Come, ye children, and hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. V. They had an eye unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
Alleluia, alleluia. V. Ps. 47 O clap your hands together, all ye people: sing unto God with the voice of melody. Alleluia.
OFFERTORY. Ps. 18 Thou shalt save the people that are in adversity, O Lord, and shalt bring down the high looks of the proud: for who is God, but the Lord?
COMMUNION. Ps. 31 Bow down thine ear: make haste to deliver us.
