Dec. 25th 2011 – Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) – At the Vigil Mass

Children's Nativity Scene

 

On Sunday Dec. 24th 2011 we celebrate the Vigil of Christmas.  The Responsorial Psalm appointed for that day is Psalm 89″Forever I Will Sing”  The music for this Psalm is the same for the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

Here is a Christmas song that I composed well over 20 years ago and it has become a sort of “standard” in our parish.  At the time I composed  ‘THIS IS THE TIME”  I asked my family to all write down those things that instantly came to mind whenever they thought about Christmas time and those thoughts formed the basis of this song. . . Sheet music for this song can be purchased $5.00 by simply going to this site: www.ukulelemikelynch.com  and pay thru the PayPal donate button. . . be sure to indicate it’s not a donation but rather to purchase the music for “THIS IS THE TIME”

Here is my Thanksgiving gift. . . I wrote this song over 15 years ago now and it has been a “standard” in our parish every Thanksgiving morning.  Typically we might sing this song together as food offerings and such are brought up to the sanctuary. . .

Over the past 42 years of my work as a liturgical musician and composer I have written over 500 settings of the Psalms which we sing as a response after the First Reading every Sunday. 32 of those years I along with my wife Collene Lynch have led the congregation of Christ The King Parish in Seattle, Washington in the singing of these psalms.  I have composed settings for virtually every psalm in our 3 year cycle.  Even today, I continue to be inspired to compose new settings which will ultimately end up on these pages.  In this web site I will endeavor to share these Psalms from week to week that can be freely used by parishes everywhere.  Note that the verses are either to be chanted, sung melodically or spoken behind the chordal accompaniment given above the text.  In our parish we liberally improvise these verses so I invite you to find your own voice in singing the verses of each Psalm. No Keyboard parts are given so once again, you will need to improvise these as well.
