Re: Pronunciation

Paul Inwood's chat on the matter of mispronounced bible book names, and words such as covenant is hysterically funny.

Re: 16ft manual stop:
It can be useful, I sometimes draw it for a final verse of a rousing hymn, then play the verse up an octave. This gives added zing.

Depends on the voicing.
Hence "can" and "sometimes." :wink:

Re: Antiphonal Singing of Latin Plainchant Mass Settings

Keraulophon notes:
Most of those seated near me were not able to join in the traditional Latin prayers and plainsong melodies. Apparently it's not only in the UK that familiarity has been lost!
A tragedy, and on our watch. Shame on us.

A rather delightful Kyrie and Agnus Dei

Fraternal greetings,
I wonder does anyone recognise the Mass setting from which the Kyrie (commencing at 5:48) and the Agnus Dei (commencing at 53:37) are taken?

Quite delicious.
Thanks everyone,
Gwyn.

Re: Unity with Liturgical Diversity

I often attend an Ordinariate Celebration of Holy Mass in Rogerstone, South-East Wales. Mass is celebrated with dignity and reverence. The music is typically Anglican - no bad thing. The Mass setting is poor, sounding like it's been cobbled together by a committee. A very capable organist plays regu...

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

Far more disturbing, a recent tweet about Readers (Lectors) links to a piece on the New Liturgical Movement website by Peter Kwasniewski which references a practice at St Thomas Aquinas College, California, where only vested altar servers are allowed to do the readings. Is the SSG thereby endorsing...

O God of every shining constellation

The hymn "O God of every shining constellation" has had a few airings on Songs of Praise of late. The Tune "Lucy" is a cracker.
