    Happy Easter, we have a head start as our Vigil was at 3pm. Have just sang Compline with my children.

    This year has been especially exhausting as the local Polish church was illegally shut down on Good Friday by the police, so I have had to update and polish our risk assessment, as well as organising the music, Singing Propehcies, being 2nd Cantor and organising our Covid Stewards.

  • He is risen!
    A blessed Easter to all. Despite the challenges of this past Lent with my resignation, not all is lost. I served the most beautiful Easter Vigil I've ever witnessed in my entire life at the Toronto Oratory. You would almost think it was EF at the Offertory.

    The video can be seen here.

    If anyone wants to see the music work I'm doing, at the same church, there will be a Missa Cantata (UA) at 2:30 PM EDT, livestreamed here.

    I really hope someone this year did the Lusitano Regina Cæli. What a gorgeous piece.

    Happy Easter to each and all!

    Yesterday at Saint-Eugène-Sainte-Cécile, we did the following:

    - Four prophecies (as per the use of Paris), sung with melismatic tones (the same can be said of the Epistle).
    - Three tracts, all sung in plainsong.
    - Sicut Cervus, in plainsong.
    - Litany of the Saints, each invocation being sung twice (first by the cantors, then by the people).
    - Missa Lux et Origo.
    - "O salutaris Hostia" after the Consecration, according to French custom, in musical plainsong.
    - At the Communion: the paschal Canon of Saint John of Damascus sung in Latin, with some falsebordone, in the sixth tone.
    - At Vespers: psalm 116 sung with faux-bourdons, and the Magnificat in the eight tone.
    - "O filii et filiae", in polyphony.

    The following day, a Solemn High Mass was celebrated (to which I didn't come), and on the Evening, we will sing Solemn Stational Vespers according to the ancient Use of Paris.

    Happy Easter, all!

    The ushers had to shut the doors to the cathedral today right before Mass began. We had a ton of people there today, and by the looks of it, 22,000 people (and counting) viewed the livestream.

    It was a beautiful Mass this morning. It truly felt like Easter today.
