Re: Liturgical Tourism

Not just in France. I was at a West London parish two weeks ago, still singing the Salazar Gloria with gusto.

Re: Ascension Day

There was a report on a Catholic website a couple of years back, that in Rome Corpus Christi is celebrated twice. The Vatican celebrates on the Thursday with the traditional procession along the Via Merulana from St John's to St Mary Major, adding to the cutomary traffic chaos no doubt. The city and...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

Thanks for the link to the Liturgy Office. This now throws up ANOTHER 'new feast - OLJC,the eternal high priest. Why are we expected to bring in new feasts almost without warning? On a positive note; this morning's Ascension Mass was very well attended, as if it had never been transfered. Let's hope...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

This has passed me by - is it a recent addition? Our Middlesbrough Ordo doesn't mention it.

Re: I Sing Pop, 'Christian music project'

I seriously doubt that adults trying to pander to children's tastes will impress or include them. With this I Sing Pop! initiative, laudable as it is, I can't help wondering if it is the opportunity to make music, with all its electronic accutriments, and to make a recording of it, that is the draw ...

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

And a few free-to-use but hopefully return Rosaries are a must!

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

Most of the items listed are ephermeral. Designate persons to: remove out-of-date collection envelopes (such as Cafod - I've seen tables with both Lent and Harvest envelopse); remove ANY dog-earred offerings, no matter how relevant; and thin out the prayer board, maybe by operating an invisible fort...

That's the folks; she played for a number of years, and then their daughter Mildred until she took ill. There are also extensive press reports of concerts, soirees etc, where they participated.

Re: Procession of Bridesmaids

My next wedding seems to be suitably vague. Starting time of about 4.30 or maybe 5 on the Wednesday after Christmas, with everyone arriving by bus from the reception. They are expecting me, priest and registrar to hang around while they ferry over 100 guests, who are only expecting an engagement par...

Re: Remembrance Sunday

We used to sing this at every evening funeral reception; Lord alone knows what non-practicising or non-RC folks made of it. As for the initials - I was told that the piece was written by friends of the organist here in Whitby around the turn of the century, a Mrs Helen Alder and her husband Thomas, ...

I've finally found a copy of Out of the Depths, from a cupboard in the church. .

Re: Procession of Bridesmaids

That'll mean more choices of unsuitable music - one tune for the bridesmaids and one for the bride.

Re: Remembrance Sunday

Yes, that's the one - in D as far as I remember. We sang it one speed, and the undertaker, who sang at Egton Bridge, sang it another. What some of the (non-practicing) families thought I"ve no idea.
I"ll dig through the cupboard again and scan it in if I find it.

Re: Remembrance Sunday

For many years we sang at the end of our Remembrance rite a unison choir piece 'Out of the depths' written by two folks named only by initial. It was published by Cary's and is thus well out of print. It was apparently written by friends of our then organist in the 1910s or 20s. It has fallen out of...
