4 May - Seventh Sunday of Easter

As usual ... my music lists for Sunday services.

St. Joseph's Episcopal Church - numbers are out of The Hymnal 1982.

The Seventh Sunday of Easter: Holy Eucharist: Rite II

Prelude: Prelude on Coronation (Heinrich Fleischer)
Pro: 450, All hail the power of Jesus' Name! (CORONATION)
Gloria: S-280 (Powell)
Psalm: Ps 68 (recited because I have no psalmist, and my singing voice was quite absent)
Seq: 315, Thou, who at thy first Eucharist didst pray (SONG 1)
Off: 460, Alleluia! Sing to Jesus (HYFRYDOL)
Sanctus: S-125, Community Mass (Proulx)
Lord's Prayer: chanted (S-119 in Hymnal 1982)
Fraction Anthem: S-154, New Plainsong (Hurd)
Comm: Alleluia! Alleluia! Opening our hearts (POST GREEN)
Re: 563, Go forward, Christian soldier, beneath his banner true (LANCASHIRE)
Postlude: Lo! He comes, with clouds descending (John Francis Wade)

No more services at Episcopal Centre at Duke University until at least late August, early September. The students have completed their academic year, and graduation is this Sunday, May 11.

Compline at Chapel of the Cross.

We've been using the Order for Compline, as set by David Hurd. This is our last Compline of the academic year, and won't be starting up until at least after Labour Day.

Our little additions:

Let my prayer come up into Thy presence (Henry Purcell; sung as introit)
Hymn: To you before the close of day (TE LUCIS ANTE TERMINUM, Mode 8)
In manus tuas (Sheppard; sung in addition to "Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit ...)
S-32, Concluding Versicle and Response in Easter Season ("Let us bless the Lord, alleluia, alleluia ...")
Regina Coeli (Marian antiphon right after the Dismissal)
Ave Maria (Robert Parsons)
Organ Voluntary on INNISFREE FARM by the abfab David Arcus.

I still couldn't join the choir as I had the vocal range of a teaspoon. But I was invited to the after-party, where we celebrated another successful year, and bade farewell to Amanda, who hopes to land a post-doctoral position by September, as well as to Roy and Jimmy, who graduated from UNC and NCCU Law School, respectively. It's been a wonderful year, musically speaking.
