  • I was confused by the title of this thread and the comments. Yes, perplexed. Then I realised (finally) that we are talking about the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite. - - -
    I'll tell you what we do at Walsingham when this feast appears in the Ordinariate Use of the Roman rite.
  • Propers, but in addition, we sang the Vespers hymn Te saeculorum Principem, which the choir had not seen before this morning. (Our director is temporarily away).

    Final Mass on day 3 of our annual (EF) Christus Rex Pilgrimage from St Patrick's Cathedral Ballarat to Sacred Heart Cathedral Bendigo (both in Victoria, Australia.)

    Procession of pilgrims into Bendigo Cathedral: Holy God.
    Introit - Dignus est Agnus (chant). Chant propers throughout.
    Ordinary: Missa Brevis (Palestrina), except for Credo III.

    Offertory: Lauda Jerusalem. Communion motet: Sicut Cervus (Palestrina). Recessional hymn: Hail Redeemer.

    An anecdote among many. One of our pilgrims advertised the Pilgrimage in the newsletter of her Sydney (Australia) bushwalking club earlier in the year. A recipient of that newsletter saw the ad, decided to come along, and met up fortuitously with this pilgrim on the first night ( about a one in 400 chance ). Anyway, they crossed paths again after the final mass. The new pilgrim was overwhelmed by the whole experience. But her predominant emotion was one of anger. "We've been RIPPED OFF all these years!" she fumed.

    @hugh Someone got recordings, sounded good mate.
  • Which tune for "Hail Redeemer", Dr. Hugh?
  • For the past three years, we've been playing André Raison's "Offerte du 5me Ton 'Le Vive le Roy des Parisiens'" for the Recessional, right after the traditional Christus vincit (not the gregorian one), as it too long to fit on our ordinary 5'30 offertoire time and too beautiful to be cut. There's an interesting history behind this organ piece, which was written for Louis XIV, 'le Roy des Parisiens'. Since Jesus Christ King of the Kings is (or at least was so recognized) also the King of the majority of the 'parisiens', the piece lives well with the circumstance of a Feast of Christ the King.

    I'm confused. We will be celebrating the feast of Christ the King on November 25th. Is this an EF/OF difference, or USA/UK.....?

    Yes here in EF land we believe that Christ is King over us Now... In the OF you have Him as your King at the end of time.

  • In the OF you have Him as your King at the end of time.

    Interesting observation re putting it in pre-Advent. Also, it's a better setup to have Him crowned right before All Saints. Of course, the biggest reason for the earlier date is to have it on Reformation Sunday.
