  • Jackson,

    Thank you for providing this list.

    Your litany must sound very different from the typical Roman Rite litany, though, that you can improvise on it!
    Thanked by 1M. Jackson Osborn
  • Well, Chris -
    The various response tones are not different at all.
    Making motives out of them for improvising a piece is not difficult - especially for our choirmaster, Edmund Murray, whose improvisatory gifts are superior even to mine (he even studied improvisation with Gerre Hancock).
    Just think of what Langlais (in Incantations pour un jour saint) did with the Lumen Christi and the litany of the saints of the Easter Vigil!
    Also what he did with the Carolingian acclamations in the last movement of the Suite Medieval!
    Also, think of the compact litany-like thematic unity of the Alain Litanies - which were inspired by something so mundane as the litany-like clickety-clack on the tracks of a train he was riding.

    Actually, our litany has a lot of the normal 'Roman' saints in it - it just has a lot of Anglo-Saxon and English saints to boot.
  • St. Ann's, Lafayette, IN

    Sung by the chant group of Purdue University:

    -ICEL Mass
    -Introit & Communion, Graduale Parvum
    -Responsory & Alleluia, Owen Alstott
    -Opening Hymn, Sine Nomine
    -Offertory Hymn, In Babilone
    -Communion Motet, Ubi Caritas
    -Closing Hymn, Old Hundredth
    -Post service music, Litany of the Saints (abridged, as Father needed to lock up)

    Considering that, due to an unexpected time change, much of this service was, to put it euphemistically, extracted from the anal area, I'd say we did a bang-up job. (I'll have a recording later, for you to judge for yourself.)
  • Stimson -
    What text did you sing to In Babilone?
  • Dimmed if I remember, Chick. Whatever was in Breaking Bad as number 716. I want to say "Sing With All the Saints in Glory"?
  • Read Novus Ordo, no music at all except half a hymn instead of the Introit and half a hymn afterwards. No Glory To God, no Creed. Solemn three-fold blessing at the end of a very unsolemn liturgy.

    I think it is so beautiful - which parts did you do?
    Thanked by 1Incardination
  • Yes, I agree - it is another example of how he so effectively incorporated elements of the chant. Our Mass is this evening... We'll definitely do the Introit and Kyrie. I was hoping to have the Sanctus / Benedictus tonight as well, but that is unlikely at this point. I'll see how it goes at the practice before Mass.

    Our goal by end of year is to have the Ordinary parts plus the Introit.

    Hmmm I'm not familiar with Carl Jaspers, do you have score link?
    Thanked by 1NJerseyTrad
  • Incardination -

    To what tune did you sing 'All Hail, Adored Trinity'?
    This is one of my favourite hymns,
    especially when paired with Deus tuorum militum.
  • We used the Old Hundredth, but I like the suggestion of using Deus tuorum militum...
  • At St. Basil's parish (University of St. Michael's College, Toronto) the Schola Cantorum (8 professional singers) programmed Victoria's Beati Immaculati for All Saints' Day, and Morales' Circumdederunt Me for All Souls', in addition to our usual hymns and Victor Togni's "Mass for the Parishes."

    @jefe, regarding that anthem "O Qualm Gloriosum," I would think that Victoria never had qualms. But if he did, would they really be glorious?

    Ronk,
    Nice catch. I have no qualms myself and even if i did they certainly would be inglorious.
    Frankly, I'm surprised any one opened the file, since the only reason to do so seems be to nit pick. For the actual evidence of impropriety, I've attached the 1st page of the score to O Quam. Here is a link to the recording, which went pretty well considering the single rehearsal:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/wc9hog0qosyl6rp/20171112.mp3?dl=0
    I'm holding out no hope that anyone will actually open these files, but it gives me a chance to select my jpeg button.

    This reminds me of carpooling with a Russian immigrant violinist, who, along with many Jewish fiddle players were allowed to leave Russia during 1976-77 window of opportunity. That outflow decimated many of the Russian Orchestras' string sections. Marc Baronov said this when asked about his interesting use of English: "Sentence structure not suit strong." The Russian violinists swept every audition they took in the West during that era.
    I was on the auditions committee when four of them auditioned for and took the job with the L.A. Philharmonic.
