20 March - Maundy Thursday

Well, it begins - The Triduum.

The first of many services: Maundy Thursday. This was a joint service between the Episcopal Centre at Duke University and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church. Numbers are out of The Hymnal 1982.

I'll have to admit - this went differently than what I am used to, from my years of being a part of the Senior Choir at Chapel of the Cross ...

After the Opening Acclamation:
Trisagion: S-100 (New Plainsong; D. Hurd)

Hymn at the Washing of the Feet: 602, Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love (CHEREPONI) (in F, using the accompaniment from the blue Presbyterian Hymnal)

Sanctus: S-124 New Plainsong (D. Hurd)
Lord's Prayer: chanted (S-119 in Hymnal 1982)
Fraction Anthem: S 161 New Plainsong (D. Hurd)
Comm: Ubi Caritas (Taizé; Refrain only)
Re: 171, Go to dark Gethsemane (PETRA)

As the altar is being stripped: I read Psalm 22, out of the Book of Common Prayer.

It continues tomorrow - Good Friday. I will have three music lists to post: two for Chapel of the Cross, as I will be singing with the Senior Choir for the Second and Third Hours, and then one for ECDU/St. Joseph's for their 6.00 pm service.
