Re: Last Night of the proms

Absolutely agree. How did you get tickets? I have been asked by friends to get some for next year. :D

Last Night of the proms

Some members may have spotted us at the Last night. At the Last night of the Proms Liz and I had the great honour of placing the chaplet on the bust of Sir Henry Wood at the beginning of the concert! Liz has been going to the Proms since she was 14 and I have been there since 1973. Both of us have s...

Re: SSG Assembly - 14/15 October in Liverpool

Sorry to have missed this but as Provincial President of the Catenians Province 7 we had our provincial weekend on the Isle of Wight. Mass was at Quarr Abbey which was lovely apart from the celebrant the Prior leaving us after the first reading. Where had he gone? To turn the sound system on! I was ...

I have been meaning to post and thank you crumhorn for a beautiful liturgy entirely right for dear Gill and an excellent lunch afterwards! So glad to be asked to sing. :D

Re: How accessible is your church?

Westminster cathedral has ramps up to the front but if the middle doors are closed for Mass one might have trouble getting through the side doors. The same applies to getting through the doors to the toilets. The Anglican church where I now play is dreadul. Steps up from the road, steps into the por...

What a dreadful shock! I will do my best to attend on the Friday but Liz goes to Lourdes on that day. John

The Lourdes Gloria has been suggested also David Saint. Any other ideas?

Re: Gloria

I do think dioceses need to give some guidance about the Gloria. The Chrism Mass is the obvious place and deanery confirmations as well. While Haugen's Mass of remembrance works with a strong choir what might work in a parish with limited resources? Suggestions welcomed as I am planning a Provincial...

Re: Bishop's consecration

Thanks Southern Comfort and the thought that one might not be anointed is a sad one indeed. :)

Re: Happy Birthday

Yes I meant descants some of which can be descents rather than ascents! :D

Re: Happy Birthday

Of course you assume that all want to sing Happy birthday and actually can sing! Perhaps a better solution is a clear melody line and others can add harmonies and descents? :D

Re: Bishop's consecration

As I understand it we are all baptised to be priests, kings and prophets and that is exactly what Bishop Paul Hendricks preached the other day. So I do not understand the idea of only bishops having "full priesthood" -clericalism again!

Re: Bishop's consecration

Thanks JW actually rather enjoyed it but an awful lot of singing. The Taize beforehand went on for ever and all so loud. As bad as singing Elijah but at least in an oratorio you get some breaks! It was lovely to meet old friends but why were the clergy at a separate reception and the bishops somewhe...

Bishop's consecration

I endured the choir rehearsal on Saturday for the consecration of our new bishop which happens today. I did find it irritating that the music booklet called it "the ordination" and some of the composers were not given. The hymn tunes not printed either - why? Some of the Diocesan choir can...
