Feast of All Saints, 11/1/18
  • What are your plans?

    As for us... EF High Mass 7:00PM, St. Lawrence/Mater Dei, Harrisburg, PA

    I'll be directing the Mater Dei Choristers for our Sung Mass this evening. There are about 45 of them, ages 6-18, split into three grade levels (each has a 45 minute class on Friday mornings), plus an "Acolyte Schola." All of them sing the ordinary and the hymns. The older 2 grade levels will sing the Vespers hymn "Placare Christe Servulis" at Offertory. The eldest class of young ladies (13-18) will sing Perosi's Ave Verum at Communion (I'll cover the baritone), and the older boys whose voices have changed will chant all of the propers.

    Prelude: Variations on German's Festive Trumpet Tune leading into an improvisation on mode 1 introit "Gaudeamus"
    Procession: Faith of Our Fathers
    Propers: Full, chanted by the "Acolyte Schola," boys ages 13-18
    Kyriale: II
    Credo: III
    Offertory: Placare Christe Servulis (hymn from II Vespers of All Saints)
    Communion: Ave Verum (SB, Lorenzo Perosi)
    Recessional: For All the Saints
    Postlude: Toccata from Symphony 5, Widor (I try to use this sparingly, for obvious reasons, but the kids just love it, so why not)

  • There are about 45 of them . . .

    Color me jealous!

    (An aside - I was really hoping to make it to your house last night, Incardination. I had heard that you were serving to the trick-or-treaters from a "huge vat of chocolate". I had my sumo wrestler tutu all ready to go.)
    Thanked by 1Incardination
  • For those who are wondering, Stim is referring to two of my choir examples...

    #1) The quality of our singing should be rich and smooth - picture a big vat of chocolate.
    #2) Basses (or other section as appropriate), you are far too heavy. Picture a sumo wrestler - that's the sound you are making right now. Now picture a sumo wrestler in a pink tutu, dancing lightly across a stage. That's the sound you need to make.

  • Pink tutus are for Gaudete and Laetare Sundays, Incard?

    We sang the chants of the day, Latin or English, accompanied or unaccompanied, depending on when you came. Some Masses included hymns to ST. ELIZABETH and SINE NOMINE. Some didn't.

  • Pink tutus are for Gaudete and Laetare Sundays, Incard?

    I've been told that it has to be Rose or Salmon for Gaudete / Laetare, not pink. ;)

    We have some vestments that are PINK, no matter what anyone says. I have been told that genuine Roman rose is actually a darker salmon color. True? Anyone know? I used to wear pink shirts for Gaudete and Laetare just to agitate the assistant pastor.

    The Latin mass today was a low mass. It was a saucy little mass with hints of beeswax and frankincense with a bouquet of urban fog as rain pervaded the area. Well attended though.

    The OF mass had cantors, no choir, and the sound of ICEL chant was heard throughout the nave. Typical All Saints hymns, "Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones," along with "For All the Saints," and the ever popular "Sing with All the Saints in Glory" based on the hymn or ode to joy. A Marchand fugue pealed out from the organ as a postlude. Attendance was also good. Surprising since it has been a generally rotten and water-logged day. I thought many folks would stay home. Pleasant surprise.

    Last night as I was reading an old friend, Jacques Maritain, I came to this beautiful and intuitive insight (emphases added) -
    Nothing is more beautiful than a High Mass - a dance before the Ark... In it the Church is not seeking for beauty, nor for decorative motifs, nor to touch the heart. Her sole aim is to adore, and to unite herself with the Saviour, and from this loving adoration beauty, too, overflows.

    Greetings, Fr Earthman
    It is nice to hear from you!
    You are sorely missed here in Houston -
    - Jackson

    (I'm still doing troped plainchant in my recitals and think of you when I do. My most recent recital included the tropes on the Kyrie cunctipotens genitor Deus sung in alternation with some anonymous French XVIth century organ versets. I'm sure that you would have been pleased.)
