Proverbs:  29:11-27: Responsively, half verse to half verse

A fool uttereth all his mind: *but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

If a ruler harken to lies, *all his servants are wicked.

The poor and the deceitful man meet together: *the LORD lighteneth both their eyes.

The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, *his throne shall be established for ever.

The rod and reproof give wisdom: *but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: *but the righteous shall see their fall.

Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; *yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

Where there is no vision, the people perish: *but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

A servant will not be corrected by words: *for though he understand he will not answer.

Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? *there is more hope of a fool than of him.

He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child *shall have him become his son at the length.

An angry man stirreth up strife, *and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.

A man’s pride shall bring him low: *but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: *he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.

The fear of man bringeth a snare: *but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

Many seek the ruler’s favour; *but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD.

An unjust man is an abomination to the just: *and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

Prelude and Fugue in E minor                                                                            J. S. Bach


(Psalm 116:3) The sorrows of death compassed me: the sorrows of hell compassed me about. (Psalm 18:6) In my distress, I called upon the Lord: and He heard my voice out of His temple. (Psalm 18:1-2) I will love Thee, O Lord, my Strength: the Lord is my Rock and my Fortress.


(Psalm 92:1) It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord: and to

sing praises unto Thy Name, O Most High.

Elevations in G                                                                                       Dom Paul Benoit


Musette                                                                                         Marius Monnikendam

Today is the beginning of a 17-day period of preparation for the season

of Lent (that will begin on Ash Wednesday), a tradition that goes back to the late 6th century. The Alleluia and the Gloria in Excelsis are omitted until Maundy Thursday during Holy Week. The names that are given to each of these three Sundays are Latin words representing the number of days prior to Easter. The term for this Sunday is Septuagesima (the Latin word for the number 70), approximately 70 days before Easter.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), organist/composer in Saxony in central Germany, wrote many pieces for organ and harpsichord in the form of a prelude in an improvisatory style based on a motive (small structural unit) and a fugue that has a theme imitated at various pitch levels.

Dom Paul Benoit (1893-1979)  was an organist, composer, and Roman

Catholic priest, who lived as a member of the Benedictine community

at the Abbey of St. Maurice and St. Maur, at Clervaux in Luxembourg. His elevations for the Eucharist are inspired by Gregorian chant and provide an aural impression for what other human senses are experiencing during the Mass.

Marius Monnikendam (1896-1977), a Dutch composer of sacred and secular works, wrote a series of short inventions for organ. A musette is a French Baroque instrument that is a samller member of the bagpipe family
