Music at noon Mass
Processional Hymn: "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"
Offertory: "Ad Te Levavi"- Josef Rheinberger (1839-1901)
Communion: "Alma Redemptoris Mater" - Giovanni Pierlugi da Palestrina (c.1525 - 1594)
Recessional : "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence"

It is always especially nice when we sing a Palestrina piece. Not only did the man write amazing music, but he was also a friend (and penitent) of St. Philip Neri, and wrote some music especially for the original Oratorians.
