Divine Service Five modified to fit with the Maundy Thursday liturgy is a beauty. Tonight we had:
Service of Corporate Confession and Absolution (for Maundy Thursday)
Service of the Word
Salutation and Collect
Psalm (sung responsively, choir and congregation)
Hymn of the Day: "O Lord, We Praise You"
Prayer of the Church
Service of the Sacrament
Words of Our Lord
Sanctus: "Isaiah, Mighty Seer"
Agnus: "Lamb of God, Pure and Holy"
Distribution with hymns
Post-communion: Mozart's "Ave, Verum Corpus"
Psalm 22 (as the altar is stripped)
Silence (as the people leave - downright painful after the postludes we've been treated to of late...)
I think that's got to be our standard Maundy Thursday. It was perfect. 214 of St. Paul's members gathered for the holy day.
