    Here we go again!

    St David of Wales Catholic Church
    11:30 PM December 24, 2023

    A Christmas Nachtmusik
    before Midnight Mass


    William Byrd: Puer natus est
    anon. c. 1555 Un niño nos es naçido
    The Gregorian melody of the Introit for Christmas Day is used to begin a Spanish carol. The setting by William Byrd (c.1540-1623) was printed in his Gradualia II (1607): “For unto us a child is born, a son is given: the government is upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Angel of Great Council.”

    Pomponio Nenna: Hodie caelorum rex
    Roland de Lassus: Consolamini popule meus
    Constanzo Porta: Hodie nobis de coelo pax
    These three anthems are from the Office of Matins for Christmas. Lassus (or as he called himself in Rome, Orlando di Lasso, 1532?-1594) sets a substantial Lesson from Isaiah 40 “Comfort ye my people…” which is framed by the shorter reponsories.

    Ann Callaway: Gloria in excelsis
    Ann Callaway is one of tonight’s singers and has composed a mass over this past year, from which we sing “Glory be to God in the highest…”

    At Midnight Mass (Missa Salve & Gloria De angelis)

    Proclamation of Christmas
    Entrance Hymn Adeste fidelis/O Come all ye faithful (hymnal 202)
    Offertory: Byrd: Dies sanctificatus / Tui sunt
    Communion: In spendoribus sanctorum mode vi
    Communion hymns: Lo how a rose (hymnal 217) Silent night (204)
    Recessional Hymn: Hark the herald angels (hymnal 209)

    Schola Cetatus (‘of the whales’; not even the composer of Saint David’s Latin gregorian chants could resist the pun) consists of Ann Callaway, Ben Rudiak-Gould, Jordan Fong and Richard Mix.

    At Midnight Mass we had the Proclamation chanted. Followed by the chanted Entrance Antiphon. The Offetory was chanted. The Communion Antiphon was chanted. Joy to the World was the recessional. The priest chanted almost the entire Mass.

    @tomjaw - I noticed we did the same Mass settings (Palestrina and Hassler) for Midnight and Day.

    An interesting coincidence, I rather like the Palestrina Missa Brevis, the peels of bells that seem to run through parts of it are quite Christmassy. The Choir voted for the Dixit Maria, even though we sang it for the 3rd Sunday of Advent.

    We banned Credo III along time ago ... We sang Mass VIII for the feast of the Holy Innocents, it was the first time we sang it for two years. I programme it for feasts of the Angels that are not first class.

    Hear is the more of our Christmas week programme...

    The Cappella Musica of Saint Andrew Church, singing under the patronage of Saint Andrew the Apostle, ministers at the 12:30 pm Sunday Mass and at various special festal Masses throughout the year. The Cappella Musica serves at the principal choir of Sain Andrew Catholic Church and regularly performs works for choir and orchestra. In 2017, members of the Cappella Musica were selected, under director Steven Ottományi, by the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel Choir to sing onstage with the Sistine Chapel Choir in its first countrywide tour of the United States. In September of 2021, the Cappella Musica was commissioned by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to present a concert of music from the California Missions with orchestra and lead music at the prayer service for the 250th anniversary of the founding of Mission San Gabriel Arcángel and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. In the summer of 2023, the Cappella Musica was commissioned to sing a concert of music of the California missions and Renaissance Mexico at the 2023 national convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians in Reno, Nevada.

    Members of the Cappella Musica hold degrees from Yale Institute of Sacred Music, Claremont Graduate University and the Claremont Colleges, the Juilliard School, Peabody Conservatory, University of Indiana, University of Michigan, Oberlin Conservatory, the University of Southern California, University of California, Los Angeles and the California State University, Fullerton, Los Angeles, Northridge, and San Bernardino campuses.

    Members of the Cappella Musica sing with Seraphic Fire, the Los Angeles Master Chorale,
    Los Angeles Opera Chorus, The Pacific Chorale, Angelus Chorale, the Verdi Chorus, the Roger Wagner Chorale, and the Long Beach Camerata Singers.
