That looks really good! I especially appreciate how you got the three antiphons for the imposition of ashes in there.

Our Ash Wednesday TLM was very solemn and beautiful though in a very cold church! Men's Schola of four voices; ten women (six in mantillas) and sixteen men (including priest, servers & schola).
