Today is the Second Sunday after Epiphany 2018 – Omnis Terra. It is also the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time as celebrated in the Novus Ordo liturgy.
A translation of the introit: Let all the earth adore Thee, O God, and sing to Thee: let it sing a psalmto Thy name, O most High. * Shout with joy to God, all the earth, sing ye a psalm to His name: give glory to His praise. The text comes from Psalm (65/)66, verse 4 and then verses 1-2.
An useful look at the season of Epiphany can found from the folks over at the Chantblog – with an excerpt here:
“Over the years, I’ve realized with more and more clarity that a central theme – if not the central theme – of Epiphany and its season is exactly summed up by the incipit of this Introit: Omnis terra adóret te – “let the whole earth adore you.”
This “universal” theme runs through everything during Epiphany season, from the themes of the Epiphany itself (especially that of the Magi, who come from afar – far outside Israel – to worship the new King); to the Epiphany propers (i.e., Reges Tharsis – “Kings of Tarshish and Saba” come to worship from the ends of the earth); to the Epiphany Collect (which begins “O God, who by the leading of a star didst manifest thy only-begotten Son to the peoples of the earth….”); and in propers throughout the season (i.e., the Offertory for today is Iubilate Deo, universa terra).”
Planned organ selections today include the following:
- Pachelbel: Allein Gott inder hoh sei Her
- Buxtehude: Toccata in G (BWV 164)
- Arrangements by Schreiner on works by Kreutzer and Mendelssohn
