Holy Thursday – Our music tonight

Tonight for Holy Thursday Mass (at 7.30pm)  l am very blessed to have a good number of people coming to sing, seven men and seven women to be precise, and some fine singers amongst that group so our music will be varied, a blend of English, Latin, chant and polyphony. Remember that the organ should be silent (if you have to, it should only be used to support the singing) from the end of the Gloria.

INTROIT –  THE GLORY OF THE CROSS WE SING (Wareham tune)

GLORIA VIII with organ fanfare and plenty of bell ringing

GRADUAL – Oculi Omnium (Charles Wood)  SATB

TRACT – From the place where the sun rises (Aristotle Esguerra psalm tone setting)

tractHT

FEET WASHING – Mandatum Novum with Psalm 118 verses (I have notated the psalm verses fully. See below)

Mandatum notation

OFFERTORY – Ubi Caritas et amor (plainsong)

SANCTUS & AGNUS DEI XVIII

COMMUNION MOTET- Ave Verum Corpus (Byrd)

COMMUNION PROPER – This is my body – Adam Bartlett Simple English Propers with Psalm 23 verses

TRANSFERENCE – Pange Lingua (Plainsong)
