24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I had promised to upload weekly programs, so here we go. The "Lord, For Thy Tender Mercy's Sake" is attributed to Richard Farrant or John Hilton, both 16th Century English composers (pdf here). It is an easy but great 4-part motet. The Miserere is Antonio Lotti's (here), a piece we love but Scott Turkington once complained that the F major ending is utterly unjustified (ha!). The O Sacrum is G. Croce's (here) (fast, slow, it works either way). None of this is difficult music, but it is all highly effective and beautiful.
