First Friday of September

Here's a new idea for - shifting to choir resources for upcoming sung Masses. If I put together pieces as I need them, then maybe I can keep the collection growing and developing in a useful way.

First up is Mass this Friday - the eve of Our Lady's Birthday and the First Friday of the month. Our local FSSP apostolate has a Votive Mass of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus every First Friday 7pm at Mulgoa.

We're planning to psalm tone the Gradual and the Alleluia verse - as in the back of the Liber Brevior. Apart from that, we should be able to manage the rest of the Propers.

Also thinking of singing Mass 4 as a little easier on the vocal chords than Mass 8 and I think everyone is pretty familiar with it now.

I would really like to sing this New Anima Christi from Chant Cafe.

Ave Verum is another which would be great - very Sacred Heart-ish with a nod to Our Lady in there.

I've been practising Hail Redeemer for the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - maybe I could get the nerve to play it on the lovely organ at Mulgoa.
