Thanks for that. Is it published or on the net anywhere?
I don't believe so, but if you PM me your e-mail address I can put you in touch with the composer

Re: St Anne's Leeds Midnight Mass

The setting of the responsorial psalm was by Philip Duffy, Master of the Music at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral from 1966-1996. As it was being sung on BBC 1 TV from Leeds, the same psalm setting was also being sung on BBC Radio 4 in the Midnight Mass broadcast from Liverpool!

Re: Gregorian Chant - Conciliar/Post-conciliar Documents

Maybe Tom could share his understanding of the phrase "all things being equal." It seems to me that the widespread use of non-gregorian propers, and of the spuriously gregorian De Angelis etc demonstrate that outside monastic and cathedral settings with their concentrations of expertise, ...

Re: School Masses

The Diocese of Leeds put a helpful document together a few years ago which whilst more generally about school liturgies, does refer to music on several occasions.

Re: Pastoral liturgy and pastoral music

I'm not about to disagree with Chris, but it seems to me that equal consideration must be given to the musical talents available, the resources in terms of the equipment and spaces available, and the profile of that given congregation or event. Badly done or inappropriate music can be deeply unedif...

Re: Pastoral liturgy and pastoral music

As an academic, I see ‘pastoral’ liturgical studies sitting alongside historical and theological enquiry. Historical liturgical studies - why do we do things this way, how did we used to do it, what were the reasons for doing something? Theological theological studies - what does this act mean, what...

Re: Episcopal ordination

Good to see. But can anyone explain the choice of O purest of creatures at the offertory? Look in the Ordo - Our Lady of Walsingham - today's feast. No, still don't quite understand. We offer gifts to the Lord while singing to (rather than about) someone else? Often the GR has the text 'Ave Maria' ...
