2nd Sunday of Advent - Year C

The Music Group is leading the music at this weekend's Vigil of the 2nd Sunday of Advent.

ENTRANCE:        Hark! A herald voice is calling KYRIE:                 Russian Kyrie PSALM:                from "Sing the Psalms Simply GOSPEL ACC:     1 OFFERTORY:       Creator of the stars of night SANCTUS:           Mass XVIII AGNUS DEI:        Mass XVIII COMMUNION:    Bread of life, hope for the world RECESSIONAL:  The voice of God goes out to all the world
One way that we mark the seasons of Advent and Lent is to use the Missal tones rather than one of our other Mass settings.  The sole exception is Russian Kyrie, which has lovely four-part harmonies very mush in the Russian Orthodox style.

The recessional hymn is new to us but is sung to the tune of "Tell out my soul", so it should be easy to pick up.

"Be though my vision is based on the version by CJM - using the same melody but slightly different chords.
"Amazing grace", however, is a totally different tune.  It is sung without guitars and has a three-part harmony.  I believe it was composed by Chris O'Hara.
