THE CHORAL PRAYER OF CONFESSION  Requiem  John Rutter 

The Chancel Choir and Orchestra 

Requiem Aeternam 

Grant them rest eternal, Lord our God, we pray to thee: and light perpetual shine on them forever. Thou, Lord, art worshipped in Zion; thy praises shall ever be sung in all Jerusalem. O hear us, O Lord, hear thy faithful servants’ prayer; to thee shall all mortal flesh return. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. 

Out of the Deep 

Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice. O let thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint. If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss: O Lord, who may abide it? For there is mercy with thee: therefore shalt thou be feared. I look for the Lord: my soul doth wait for him, and in his word is my trust. My soul fleeth unto the Lord: before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch. O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy: and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his sins.

The Lord’s Prayer 

Communion of the People 

 

THE COMMUNION ANTHEMS  Agnus Dei  John Rutter 

Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world: in thy mercy grant them rest. Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and is cut down like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow. In the midst of life we are in death. Of whom may we seek for succor? I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. 

The Lord is My Shepherd  John Rutter 

The Lord is my shepherd: therefore can I lack nothing. He shall feed me in a green pasture, and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort. He shall convert my soul and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness, for his Name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff comfort me. Thou shalt prepare a table for me against them that trouble me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil and my cup shall be full. But thy loving kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

 

THE PRAYER AFTER THE MEAL 

 

THE COMMUNION RESPONSE  In Paradisum  John Rutter 

I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, for they rest from their labors. Even so saith the Spirit. Light eternal shine upon them, Lord, we pray: with saints and angels ever dwelling, for thy mercy’s sake, may they rest in peace. Grant them rest eternal, Lord our God, we pray to thee, and light perpetual shine on them forever. 

Shannan O’Dowd, soprano
