A Message of Gratitude from the Choir of Our Lady of the Rosary for the End of Liturgical Year C

As we come to the end of another liturgical year, we, the Choir of Our Lady of the Rosary RC Church, express our gratitude to you who have listened and supported our music ministry during the course of the year.

We pray for God’s blessings on you and hope that you will stay with us, as we start a new liturgical year of psalms, with the coming of Advent.

We are reminded of the Letter of Saint Paul to the Colossians 1:15-18 -

“He is the image of the unseen God and the first-born of all creation, for in Him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, Thrones, Dominations, Sovereignties, Powers – all things were created through Him and for Him. Before anything was created, He existed, and He holds all things in unity. Now the Church is His body, He is its head.”

The Choir of Our Lady of the Rosary RC Church

Choral music for the Feast of Christ the King, from GIA

Selections from GIA Publications, Inc:

Concertato on Crown Him with Many Crowns
Arr. Richard Proulx
A powerful and harmonically adventurous arrangement that will enhance your congregation's singing.

Choral Fanfare for Christ the King
H. Hamilton Smith
With familiar Christ the King texts from Psalm 71:8 and Daniel 7:14, this masterpiece is a powerhouse that allows you to use full organ in dialogue with your choir! A classic from the GIA choral catalog.

Christus Paradox
Music by Alfred Fedak | Text by Sylvia Dunstan
Sylvia Dunstan's text examines the dual natures of Christ. Rarely does a text and tune paring work as well as this, proclaiming that Jesus Chris is both "our death and our life." A GIA best-seller. Optional orchestral parts available, arranged by John Ferguson.

Hymn of Consecration
Martin V. Curtis
Adapted from Psalm 122, "I was glad when they said to me," Hymn of Consecration is a bold, driving charge "to go to the house of the Lord!"

Let Us Go Rejoicing
Chris de Silva
A versatile piece that will engage children, assemblies, and adult choirs. With a call-and-response format, minimal rehearsal time is needed.

Come Forth to be Renewed
Robert J. Powell
Robert J. Powell takes text by John Milton and turns it into a stirring anthem for brass quartet, timpani, organ, and SATB choir. Festive, fanfare-like, and definitely affirming for Christ the King.

Responsorial Psalm 121(122):1-5 for Christ the King - I Rejoiced When I Heard Them Say: ‘Let Us Go To God’s House.’

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 121(122):1-5 for Christ the King

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

I rejoiced when I heard them say:
‘Let us go to God’s house.’
And now our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

Jerusalem is built as a city
strongly compact.
It is there that the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

For Israel’s law it is,
there to praise the Lord’s name.
There were set the thrones of judgement
of the house of David.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

Come Holy Ghost - in swing time with a Marian twist

If anyone is interested I just released a recording of the traditional Catholic hymn Come Holy Ghost with some interesting, catchy variations. In particular I added two prayers to the Holy Spirit as bridges. The song is uplifting, but prayerful at the same time.

Responsorial Psalm 97(98):5-9 for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C - The Lord Comes To Rule The People With Fairness

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 97(98):5-9 for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

The Lord comes to rule the peoples with fairness.

Sing psalms to the Lord with the harp
with the sound of music.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
acclaim the King, the Lord.

The Lord comes to rule the peoples with fairness.

Let the sea and all within it, thunder;
the world, and all its peoples.
Let the rivers clap their hands
and the hills ring out their joy
at the presence of the Lord.

The Lord comes to rule the peoples with fairness.

For the Lord comes,
He comes to rule the earth.
He will rule the world with justice
and the peoples with fairness.

The Lord comes to rule the peoples with fairness.

Responsorial Psalm 16(17):1,5-6,8,15 for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

I shall be filled, when I awake, with the sight of Your glory, O Lord.

Lord, hear a cause that is just,
pay heed to my cry.
Turn Your ear to my prayer:
no deceit is on my lips.

I shall be filled, when I awake, with the sight of Your glory, O Lord.

I kept my feet firmly in Your paths;
there was no faltering in my steps.
I am here and I call, You will hear me, O God.
Turn Your ear to me; hear my words.

I shall be filled, when I awake, with the sight of Your glory, O Lord.

Guard me as the apple of Your eye.
Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
As for me, in my justice I shall see Your face
and be filled, when I awake, with the sight of Your glory.

I shall be filled, when I awake, with the sight of Your glory, O Lord.

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 23(24):1-6 for All Saints

Such are the men who seek Your face, O Lord.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world and all its peoples.
It is he who set it on the seas;
on the waters he made it firm.

Such are the men who seek your face, O Lord.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
The man with clean hands and pure heart,
who desires not worthless things.

Such are the men who seek your face, O Lord.

He shall receive blessings from the Lord
and reward from the God who saves him.
Such are the men who seek him,
seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Such are the men who seek your face, O Lord.
