Sunday Report

We had a big turnout for choir this morning, which was great!  Due to the holiday weekend, we had a shorter rehearsal than usual before mass, just reviewing the material for the day.

Processional:  Let All Things Now Living (Ash Grove)
Offertory:  A choral arrangement of J.S. Bach’s Sheep May Safely Graze.
Communion:  Tantum Ergo by Louis Vierne
Recessional:  Now Thank We All Our God

The words for Tantum Ergo were written by St. Thomas Aquinas:

Tantum ergo sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, genitoque
Laus et iubilatio,
Salus, honor virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio. Amen.

Translated:

Down in adoration falling,
Lo! The Sacred Host we hail.
Lo! o’er ancient forms departing,
Newer rites of Grace prevail:
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail. 

To The Everlasting Father
And The Son Who reigns on high,
With The Spirit blessed proceeding
Forth, from Each eternally,
Be salvation, honor, blessing,
Might and endless majesty. Amen.
