Re: SSG Spring Gathering Winchester 14th March 2020

There's a 9:00am Mass at St Peter's so parking may be difficult. There are public car parks at hand, but once you go over 4 hours in the city centre car parks the charge jumps from £5.60 to £15.00...... St Peter's is a few minutes' walk from Winchester railway station.

It's just gone up, on the Society's Facebook page. But many people are not on Facebook!

Others have been wondering, too. It's only three weeks away now!

Re: Presentation of the Lord

We are going through a bit of a time of change with a new Parish Priest from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham (plus an Ordinariate curate - a real bonus!) and are the 'home' of the local Ordinariate group. Our Principal Concelebrant yesterday was Mgr Keith Newton, the Ordinariate's Ordinar...

Re: Music for Sprinkling Rite

I saw water flowing from the temple has been set by Bob Hurd and Randall deBruyn (both from OCP). A different version of this text with an ostinato refrain is Cyprian Consiglio's Streams of Living Water, also from OCP.

Re: Paraphrases - yet again!

Furthermore, earlier in Holy Week (not during the Triduum), the same is true of a number of items on Palm Sunday: The antiphon Hosanna to the Son of David The antiphons and psalms during the Procession of Palms (in which, NB, the Missal butchers the layout of the Revised Grail Psalter) The hymn Glor...

Re: Paraphrases - yet again!

As I understand it, texts which are mandatory (Behold the Wood of the Cross or Exsultet) should use the prescribed texts. However, those which are optional (Reproaches or Ubi Caritas) don't have to. I'm sure there are those who will explain this more fully. This is correct. In addition, it's worth ...

Re: Salazar Gloria

Peter , the organist in question also told me that the priest had asked him to find something lively, and the Salazar Gloria was about the liveliest thing he could find in Laudate . You are right, these settings are technically no longer approved for use as substitutes for the corresponding liturgi...

Mgr Anthony Boylan RIP

Very sad to see that Tony Boylan, for a number of years author of The Last Word at the back of the SSG journal, went to his eternal reward on 20 November. Tony was a genuinely nice man who did much more to further the cause of liturgical formation in England and Wales than is generally realised. Wit...

Re: New facebook Group

This group began less than a month ago, set up by Andrew Butler of Tenterden, Kent. It does seem to have a slightly different flavour from the SSG forum. One reason for that could be that the group appears to include a significant proportion of organists who are not Catholic but who are playing in C...

Re: Installation of new Archbishop of Southwark

It was good to find the cctv inside the cathedral operating after several years of decline - but the locally vaunted new live diocesan YouTube broadcast failed after about 30 minutes. However, you can view a recording of the entire celebration at https://youtu.be/RWN_MG3nCVk Yes, the failure of the...

Re: Learning the organ

I'm having a go at learning to play the Gloria from the Psallite Mass, as I know it from the Cathedral and like it. (and on a separate point, looking at introducing it at my local parish church, to replace the Salazar setting we currently use.) Can I ask if I am playing the right chords here, in re...

Re: Diocesan youth celebrations

The key thing to take away from organist 's comment is The Southwark Catholic Youth service team work really hard to animate these Masses, but I think it can be honestly said that they have a different agenda to what is being sung in many parishes and at diocesan events. That is probably very true, ...

Re: Learning the organ

I've heard the folksy version of it, but at both this church and at Salford we have sung it at a much slower pace, and it is better for it IMO. Here's a nice version of it; the same arrangement (and about the same tempo, I think!) that we sang in Salford. Yes, this tempo is good. The versions I hav...
