Happy & Blessed Pentecost 2019!
  • I had the joy of playing and singing for a Solemn High Mass for the Vigil of Pentecost at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Paterson, NJ today for newly-ordained Fr. John Killackey, FSSP, as part of his "First Mass Tour." Now I'm ready to dive into Pentecost proper tomorrow morning!


    PROCESSION: Come Holy Ghost (Lambillotte)
    Full Gregorian Propers
    KYRIALE: II (fons bonitatis)
    CREDO: I
    OFFERTORY: Organ Improv on Veni Sancte Spiritus
    COMMUNION MOTET: Veni Creator Spiritus (Couturier alternatim chant/SATB)
    RECESSIONAL: Come Down, O Love Divine

    @Cantus67 the Ave Maria á 5 - Parsons, is the one we sing and is probably the best setting of the text! Good to see someone else singing Mass II.

    I'll leave the location off for privacy's sake.

    Music: just the propers, plus the indulgenced Veni Creator.

    I'll write additional commentary else where so as not to disrupt the lovely format of this thread.

    @32ContraBombarde - I've been to your church - it was lovely! I have family in that area, though I live overseas.

    I guess you've answered my question, but I'll ask it anyway: doesn't it strike you as gilding the lilly to include both Come Holy Ghost and Veni Creator Spiritus?

    We repeat things too at the EF Mass I attend, sometimes even immediately: e.g., a chant offertory proper followed by a polyphonic setting of the same text. At this parish's offertory there's enough time to do that.

    Modern liturgical purists prefer to eliminate "redundancies", I suppose.

  • CGZ - about redundancy
    it doesn't bother me.

    in the hymnals we have, all the people will sing Come Holy Ghost
    maybe 35% will sing O Breathe on Me, Thou Breath of God
    and none will sing anything else
    so dot's wot i picked.

    Choir sang the Couturier Veni Creator Spiritus because... ok that's another thread that I always wanted to start. thanks for the reminder :-)
  • Chonak,

    "purism" probably comes in many flavors, I think.

    a) Gregorian Chant propers and Ordinaries, with no polyphony ever.

    b) Polyphony is allowed at Mass, because the Church gives us the treasury of music, but must never replace Gregorian chant Propers, only supplement them. (So, for example, at the Easter Vigil, no polyphonic settings of Sicut Cervus, Sitivit Anima Mea and Fuerunt mihi may ever be used at the procession to the font, but may be used, sparingly, at that Mass at other times.)

    c) Organ must accompany chant; all chant, period.

    d) Organ must never accompany chant, as it is a noisy instrument played by self-centered showmen and adds utterly un-necessary frills to the Mass. (Remember, Puritanism is a form of "purism".

    e) Something else?

  • e) Polyphony appropriately used, and unobtrusive, supporting organ accompaniment for a small % of chant (e.g., Kyriale alternation)

    we had a visitor who was organist at a seminary
    He played a quiet solo of "O Quam Glorifica" which really brought tears to my eyes. It was just his own composition, based on so many years of hearing it sung beautifully.
