Pew Missal

Fr. Cornelius has issued a redesigned Pew Missal for our congregants.  This has the order of service for our Sunday mass, according to the Anglican Use.  As we understand it, the Interdicasterial Commission, "Anglicanae Traditiones", convened by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Congregation for Divine Worship to work out an Anglican Use liturgy for the Ordinariates will eventually publish their work for an international Use.  Until that time, the linked Missal contains the authorized Use in the interim, as a step between the Book of Divine Worship and the final Books.

As an outline, this includes:
Asperges, the rite of sprinkling, accompanied by Latin chant
Processional hymn
Opening Acclamation
Decalogue (in Lent)
Kyrie (or in Lent, the Trisagion)
Gloria (not in Lent)
First Lesson
Psalm - chanted by our cantor.
Second Lesson - chanted to Epistle tone.
Sequence anthem
Chanted Gospel
Nicene Creed (monotone)
Prayers of the People
Comfortable Words
Sursum Corda
Proper Preface, and Sanctus
Roman Canon in traditional English
Pater Noster
Agnus Dei
Prayer of Humble Access
Communion (kneeling)
Abolutions and concluding rites
Last Gospel
Recessional Hymn

Most everything is sung or chanted.  The mass setting we are currently using are (mostly) from Willan.  Our altar is (naturally) Eastward facing.
