Music for noon Mass
Processional Hymn: "Wake, Awake, for Night is Flying"
Offertory: "Creator alme siderum"- Gregorian Chant
Communion: "Dicite Pusillanimes" - Johann Joseph Fux- (1660-1741)
Recessional Hymn: "Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates"

The Offertory was especially nice . We chanted all six verses, with certain variations on them. (The first verse was sung by the men only, the second by all, the third by women only, the fourth by all, the fifth by all, but with the basses and altos dropping down so that we were singing parallel fifths, and the sixth by all. )
