15 March - Third Sunday in Lent

*iz late*

And the only thing I can do is plead laziness. Oh, and the fact that cold symptoms seemed to have manifested itself early Wednesday morning.

I know. That is no excuse. Here are my usual lists.

St. Joseph's Episcopal Church where I played the usual 10.30 am service. As usual, the numbers are out of The Hymnal 1982.

Third Sunday in Lent: Holy Eucharist Rite II
Prelude: Jesu, meine Freude, BWV 610 (J.S. Bach)
Pro: 409, The spacious firmament on high (CREATION)
Kyrie: S-91 Missa de Sancta Maria Magdalena (Willan)
Psalm: Psalm 19 (Tone II.1)
Seq: 313, Let thy Blood in mercy poured (JESUS, MEINE ZUVERSICHT)
Off: 148, Creator of the earth and skies (UFFINGHAM)
Sanctus: S-124 New Plainsong (D. Hurd)
Lord's Prayer: chanted (S-119 in Hymnal 1982)

Communion Hymn: WLP 747, God the sculptor of the mountains (Urbis beata, Sarum Plainsong Mode II)
Re: 143, The glory of these forty days (ERHALT UNS, HERR)

Episcopal Centre at Duke University didn't have a service because the students were just coming back from their Spring Break. Services resume on the 22nd for the Fourth Sunday in Lent, when an Instructed Eucharist is planned.

Compline at the Chapel of the Cross. We've been using the Order for Compline, as set by David Hurd.

Here are our little additions:

Nolo mortem peccatoris (Thomas Morley)
Psalms 4 & 31 (chanted to Tone 8)
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 ...)
Nunc Dimittis (fauxbourdon, H. Willan)
Ave Regina Cælorum (Marian antiphon right after the Dismissal)
Ave Maria (Robert Parsons)
Organ Voluntary by the abfab David Arcus.
