Voluntary Introitus and Kyrie from Organoedia ad missam lectam Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967)
The organ prelude and postlude are by Zoltán Kodály, who revolutionized the method by which we teach music theory and especially ear training to students of music. Though most of his music is based in the hungarian folk tradition, this organ mass is in a late romantic style, with many moods and dramatic tone painting. This work was later transformed into a Missa Brevis for choir, organ, and orchestra.

Communion Motet Ave verum corpus Stephanie Martin (b. 1962)
Words attributed to Pope Innocent VI (d. 1362)
Ave, verum corpus natum de Maria Virgine, vere passum immolatum in Cruce pro homine,
Cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit sanguine, esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.
Hail, true body born of the Virgin Mary, who truly suffered, sacrificed on the Cross for man,
Whose pierced side overflowed with blood, Be for us a foretaste in the test of death.
