|Entrance||(i) Hodie Christus natus est (chant) |
(ii) O Come all ye faithful
|Psalm||All the ends of the earth (Alan Johnson)|
|Gospel Acclamation||St Agatha Alleluia (mcb)|
|Preparation of the Gifts||God rest ye merry Gentlemen|
|Sanctus, Acclamation, Amen||Mass of Creation (Marty Haugen)|
|Agnus Dei||Lamb of God II (mcb)|
|Communion||Bread of Life (Bernadette Farrell)|

Seven men of the choir made our usual merry noise in three and four part harmony. Malcolm Archer’s setting of Christina Rossetti’s poem, and Bernadette Farrell’s thoughtful Communion song, made for moments of tranquility among all the festive cheer.
A happy Christmas to everyone!
