    St. Bedes Clapham Park, 11am Solemn High Mass, a newly ordained Deacon was our Subdeacon today.
    Our usual conductor is on Honeymoon, having married one of our altos last week, so our former director was leading us today.

    Entrance, Christus Vincit (melody from Worcester Antiphonal)
    INT. Dignus est Agnus (Graduale Romanum 1924)
    KY. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    GL. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    GRAD. Dominabitur (Graduale Romanum 1924)
    ALL. Potestas ejus (Graduale Romanum 1924)
    CR. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    OFF. Postala a me (Graduale Romanum 1924)
    Offertory motet, Dominus Regnavit, Joaquin Desprez (1st half)
    SAN. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    BEN. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    AGN. Missa O quam gloriosum, Victoria
    COM. Sedebit Dominus (Graduale Romanum 1924)
    Communion motet, Dominus Regnavit, Joaquin Desprez (2nd half)
    ITE. Mass II
    Domine Salvum fac (chant)
    Marian Anthem, Solemn tone (Salve Regina)

    We had our usual All Saints children party after Mass with the children dressing up as saints and giving a short presentation, the day ended with Procession with Litany of the Saints followed by Benediction with consecration and Litany of the Sacred Heart (to gain the Plenary Indulgence).
  • Beautiful!
    At first sight I thought it was a little early for Christ the King.
    Then I realised that you go by the Tridentine kalendar.

  • Tom,

    We sang Mass II for the first time this morning.

    What pitch do you use as doh?

    the Tridentine kalendar

    But Christ the King wasn't a thing at Trent?

    I recently made the trivial observation that Christ the King has a longer tradition of being celebrated on the last Sunday of the year (1970-2020, or 51 years) than on the last Sunday of October (1925-1969, or 45 years)
  • Gerard,

    It's called the Tridentine calendar for short. No one asserts that saints canonized after Trent aren't on that calendar, nor feasts established aren't there, either.

    I was being facetious. No offence intended
  • None taken. Thank you for clarifying.

    (Just being silly, not trying to hurt any feelings. I've never seen it spelled that way!)
  • St. Sebastian, Akron OH
    I paid for a couple of singers so we could do something.
    Hymn: Crown Him With Many Crowns (DIADEMATA)
    Mass in 3 Voices (Byrd), but Credo IV
    Full Gregorian Proper (the priest complained about the Gradual and Alleluia verse)
    Offertory: Laudate Domino a 3 (Prima Pars only) (di Lasso)
    Communion: O Salutaris Hostia (anon. English, Gyffard partbooks)

  • Is this the O Salutaris Hostia to which you are referring, @Jeffrey_Quick?
    I love finding these 3 part gems on the forum!

    Since Jeffrey Quick is, in fact, the editor of the score, doesn't it seem as if the preponderance of evidence suggests an affirmative answer? And, yes, it is indeed a gem.

    Priest complained about the gradual and alleluia verse

    And I hope you complained about the homily.
    Thanked by 1tomjaw
  • Homily was fine. Actually, I didn't mind that he found them too long; he has a bad back. I was mildly annoyed when he recommended the Rossini Propers, both that he seemed to think I didn't know about them, and that I'd consider doing them. He's back on P24, and we'll do the Griesbacher gradual and alleluia; quite brief, and he prefers composed music. Win-win.

    To be fair, I usually find the gradual and alleluia to be too long…
