Need help people!
Can anyone familiar with the Pre 1955 rite of Palm Sunday give me a rundown so that we can properly give the music?
Father Pfeiffer is coming up here on Saturday, and we're doing it the old way, and I need to make sure we're doing it properly.
Here's what I have so far. Please fill in blanks if you can.
There's supposed to be Asperges in here, but I don't know where it goes
2) Blessing of Palms.
3)Hosanna Filio David
4) Procession (According to the rubrics, you cannot do blessing of palms without the procession!) with Gloria Laus
(Half the choir is supposed to be inside the church at this point, doors closed... as seen in this video)
5) The priest knocks on the door with the crucifix and the doors are then opened and then the Ingrediente is sung (please correct me if I'm wrong)
6) Reverence is made to the altar, and then he reads a prayer which ends the procession, while the ingrediente is being sung.
7) Priest prays collect.
8)Reads Epistle Exodus 15
9) Responsory Domine, ne longe facias is sung. (Again, correct me if I'm wrong.) Priest reads it while being sung.
10)Then the tract and the gradual are done. Tenuisti Manum and the Deus, Deus Meus are sung.
11)Then the Gospel is read (a layperson would be reading it in English as Father reads it in Latin)
12) Then sermon
14) Improperium Offertory
(We'll be doing the simple intonation for the tract/graduals, but I wanted to link them in the gregorian way because they're ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND I WISH I COULD DO THEM THAT WAY!)
