    An addendum - our friends will be delighted to know that our long-awaited rood screen will be installed during the next two weeks. It is said to be very elaborate, the finest ever made by the firm who have made it. Incidentally, some nosing around in this book and that has yielded the certainty that the eastern iconastasis was indeed a borrowing that developed from the western screen, which was an architectural feature common in western churches rather early on. Crowning the screen with a rood scene was a later development, very common in England, where the screen was retained long after it had begun to be discarded on the continent.

    Incidentally, some nosing around in this book and that has yielded the certainty that the eastern iconastasis was indeed a borrowing that developed from the western screen, which was an architectural feature common in western churches rather early on.

    What was common in early western and eastern churches was a solid wall enclosing the Holy of Holies, just like the Jerusalem temple, with a door, of course. See the Gamber book for a reconstruction of what this looked like in the original St. Peter's. All the other variations, east and west, developed later. In the east, they started hanging icons on the wall. Those rood screens came along after the walls disappeared.

    All Saints: Had the day off and don't know what they did. The pastor said to enjoy it and not worry about it, so I did. My first day off since 2007.

    You've worked 7 days a week since 2007???

    Sundays and Holy Days masses since 2007, which was my last day off. From 2001 to 2007 I did take a few days off. I also do some work during the week, more admin and paperwork than playing. A former associate pastor often said I was the hardest working person in town. I admit to being a bit of a workaholic.

    Addition: Here is the downside to that when dealing with choir and cantor excuses.

    1. My dog died. Leave the dog, it will be there after you get home from mass.
    2. I have out of town visitors. Bring them with you. They need church, too.
    3. My car wont start. Call early enough that I can send someone to pick you up.
    4. The roads are bad. I live between two large hills and made it fine.
    5. I forgot to set the clock. Give me a break. That excuse hasn't worked since high school.
    6. My husband or wife died. OK, that one is legitimate. LOL.

    This was our first Holy Day with a new schedule of 6:30 weekday Masses following 5:00 exposition. We kept the 6:00 warmup call the same, but a sung Benediction at 6:15 came as a surprise and made it rather challenging to rehearse in the nursery beneath the organ chamber. I'll have to rethink Immaculate Conception...

    At the Episcopal parish I serve:

    Prelude: O Quanta Qualia … P. Cranmer
    Processional hymn: For all the saints, who from their labors rest  SINE NOMINE
    Gloria (Missa de Sancta Maria Magdelena) … H. Willan
    Sequence hymn: I sing a song of the saints of God GRAND ISLE
    Offertory anthem: I saw a new heaven (Revelations 21, 1-4:)… E. Bainton
    Sanctus (Missa de Sancta Maria Magdelena) … H. Willan
    Agnus Dei (Missa de Sancta Maria Magdelena) … H. Willan
    Communion anthem: ‘Litanei’ op. posth. …F. Schubert (sung in German), Dennis Burke, baritone
    Communion hymn: For the bread which you have broken OMNI DEI
    Voluntary: Blessed Jesus, at thy word BWV 731 … J. S. Bach 
    Postlude: Auferstehn, ja auferstehn ('Arise, arise') op. 79b #7 … M. Reger

    Not a fan of GRAND ISLE, or the hymn text, which while charming is more suited to Vacation Bible School than Holy Mass, but it's one of the few concessions I have to make during the year.

    My next steps at this parish are to get us chanting the Psalm (Anglican), and convincing our Rector that his really lovely voice can be put to good use!

  • All Saints, St. Sebastian, Akron
    Nothing fancy:
    Pro/recessional: For all the Saints
    Mass XI, Credo I
    Offertory: Perosi: Justorum animae
    Communion: Salutis aeternae autor (chant)
    Traditional All Saints pre-empted our rehearsal time, and people had excuses about work and some ball game that was being played downtown, so I cancelled (no practical time worked) and we had to cover 3 masses of music in an hour and a half. The Perosi was, to put it charitably, rough in its polyphony. But it was some of the best chanting I've every gotten out of them.
  • I played the 6:15 AM earlybird commuter mass...
    Priest walks up to the altar and says "The LORD Be With Both Of You."

    Ba dum, tsssssss!
  • A mere priest said 'Peace be....'.???
  • Sorry, typo.

    I know an otherwise orthodox priest who frequently begins the Mass with "Peace be with you." I am soooo tempted to say something, but I hold my tongue.
  • I know a priest who does the "My peace I give you..." phrase in schprechtstimme. As the Lord's Prayer ends I always think to myself, "wait for it.......wait for it......."

    Sine Nomine is always a highlight of the year for me because we used to play it (ad infinitum) at graduations in college for the entrance procession.

    Exsultate justi (Banchieri)
    Daniel, one to check out? I've used the Viadana because it's in Rutter's anthology but never looked into Banchieri's Latin pieces.
  • SalieriSalieri
    Posts: 2,596
    I've used the Banchieri "Exultate", too, it's a great piece. It's scored for two voices, SB (originally TB?), and continuo, and is fairly simple but sounds "bigger" than it actually is.

  • Rather than start a new Thread, this was done at Walsingham this evening -

    The XXVIth Sunday after Trinity
    Being the 6 November

    The Very Rev. Chatles A Hough, IV, Rector - Officiant
    Edmund Murray - Cathedral Organist and Choirmaster

    Votive Office of the Dead

    Organ Voluntary - Prelude, Fugue et Variation - - - Cesar Franck

    (Silent Processsion - )

    Introit - Justorum animae - - - Sir Charles Villiers Stanford

    The Psalter -
    Psalm CXXI - Levavi oculos - - - Chant, H Walford Davies
    Psalm CXXXIX - Domine probasti - - - Chant, S S Wesley

    The First Canticle -
    Magnificat - - - Everett Titcomb

    The Second Canticle -
    Nunc dimittis - - - Everett Titcomb

    Closing Hymn - 'Lead, Kindly Light, amid th' encircl'ing gloom' - - - Sandon

    The Office concluded, the following was sung:

    Requiem in D-Minor, Op 48 - - - Gabriel Faure

    Organ Voluntary - Adagio, from Symphony no. Five - - - Charles-Marie Widor


    NOTE -
    1. The office was the first offering of the evening office of the new Divine Worship:The Office. The office of the dead differs from normal evensong through the absence of the opening preces, the replacement 'Glory be...' with 'Rest eternal...' after the psalmody, the absence of the suffrages, and the presence of collects specific to the dead.

    2. Vesture was black.

    3. The closing hymn, 'Lead, Kindly Light' is by Blessed J H Newman.
