Trinity Sunday @ my Parish

    I wish Tuuk would revise Mass of the Holy Trinity. I did my best but I'd like it to be official.

    Prelude: "Rhosymedre" - R. Vaughan Williams
    "Prelude on an Introit" (from Quatre Pieces) - Dom Paul Benoit
    Introit: Canticle: "Benedictus, es" (in English) -- metrical version to tune of Cleansing Fountain
    Hymns: "Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty" - Niacea, with David McK. Williams descant
    "Thy strong Word dids't cleave the darkness" -Ton Y Botel
    "Our Father by whose Name" - Rhosymedre
    "Faith of Our Fathers" - St Catherine
    Anthem: "The Majesty and Glory of Your Name" - Tom Fettke

    Normally, would do more challenging music for Trinity Sunday. However, the summer vibe is upon us and I am simply happy to have a choir that sings on summer Sundays because I set that expectation in 1988. We only rehearse for forty-five minutes on Sundays with no week night rehearsal.

    I invited my homeschool "choir" to come and sing at our 10:00 a.m. Mass. The kids sang this lovely hymn called "O Blessed Trinity" by Faber which I found in the Catholic Choirbook. The fathers of the children sang the Gregorian proper for Offertory and did very well!

    Ended up not doing the Buxtehude--couldn't find my book (the loft is still undergoing renovation from our organ installation this spring, and so things are in boxes and piles in the undercroft)--so I did an improvised postlude which ended up turning into a choralpreludium on ST ANNE.

    Trinity Sunday
    St. Joseph's Greenwood

    PROCESSIONAL: All Hail, Adored Trinity
    OFFERTORY: Schubert, Salve Regina
    -Jam Sol Recedit (chant)
    -Martini, Adoramus Te
    -Portuguese Merry-Go-Round, Ecce Panis Angelorum
    RECESSIONAL: O God, Almighty Father

    Yet another exciting chapter in "The Unpredictability of Pastors". As I was sitting in the pew before mass reading the divine office, Father emerged unexpectedly from the confessional, approached me, and said "You sing in the choir, yes? Come with me." As he was looking rather disheveled I felt best to oblige. In the vestibule he apologized, saying 'I was the closest victim', then said that today's mass would be Low, with Introit and Communion. No explanation for these maimed rites - perhaps he had a meeting at the home priory, and was in a hurry - but at any rate we ended up singing roughly the same amount of music as usual, mass lasted the same duration as usual, and Father seemed dazed and confused throughout all of this. (His sermon, usually full of non sequiturs, was today a masterpiece of incoherence. The poor fellow even had to stop halfway through when he realized he still had his maniple on.) But we did some great music, and we got to practice more afterwards. Including Biebl. Booyah.

    St. Sebastian, Akron
    Hymn: Holy God, we praise Thy name
    Mass in honor of St. John Cantius, Op. 38 (Walkiewicz), Credo 4
    Gregorian Propers
    Offertory: Cor Jesus Trinitatis (hymn)
    Communion: O sacrum convivium (Ravenello/Rossini)

    We have a former very good member in town visiting, but were otherwise shorthanded...3 women, Mike and I. Schola doesn't know all the Walkiewicz yet, but Mike did, so we were doing to do the Kyrie and Sanctus/Benedictus tutti, and Mike and I were going to do the Gloria and Agnus. We didn't have a chance to run it beforehand (just the tutti movements), but we'd done it a month beforehand, and Mike is good. I may have had Schola read the Agnus once, but it would have been months ago.

    So everything is going well, Mike comes down front, I'm looking at him (NOT at the ladies, and not conducting), the organist starts the Agnus...and the women come in with me. "Oh no...I can't stop them because it will sound bad...maybe they'll remember and not make the 2nd entrance, which will STILL sound bad, but not as bad...nope, they're in...ascending m6 to Eb coming, deploy air bags...whew, they made you mean to tell me they're sight-reading this? Am I Living the Life?" Yes, my schola, which Doesn't Read Music, sight-read a Mass movement at Mass. There were 1 or 2 dodgy intervals, but tbh they've done worse when we've rehearsed.I was dumbfounded. And relieved. And determined that it not happen again. :-)

    His sermon ... was today a masterpiece of incoherence.

    Well, that's normal for Trinity Sunday just about anywhere.
  • ...just about anywhere.
    Except at Walsingham - and, I should think, a few other places.
    Actually, the homily at Walsingham yesterday, given by the rector, was a breath of fresh air. I was in awe at the mass which really was all about the Most Holy Trinity, the God-head, God himself. There should be more Sundays like this, devoted to God as God in all his plenitude.

    (Trinity Sunday, as a universal solemnity, actually started in England. It was Becket, who was consecrated on the spottily observed feast of the Trinity, who decreed that it should be universal in the English Church. From there it spread to the continent and, a few popes later was declared a universal observance. Also, Sundays are historically counted after Trinity in England, as opposed to after Pentecost on the continent.)
