Tag Archives: christ be our light

What I picked last weekend: 1st Sunday of Advent

Now that I’m scheduling hymns at my main parish, I’m restarting the old What I Played Last Weekend but renaming the category. Here’s today’s first installment.

Notes: Got a lot of singing with the entrance. The psalm was a request from the priest; I prefer the psalm of the day but this isn’t a hill to die on. Everyone loves “Christ, Be Our Light,” and that went well. The litany went OK, but it was completely new and our version has an intro that’s not in the books, causing some confusion.

Entrance: O Come, Divine Messiah

Psalm: To You, O Lord (Haugen)

Offertory: Christ, Be Our Light

Mass Parts: Heritage Mass

Communion: Advent Litany (Prendergast)

Recessional: O Come O Come Emmanuel (a cappella)

What I played last weekend: 10th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Only one English Mass this weekend.
