Re: Liturgical Tourism

Having found on completing this post that I'd inadvertently sent part of it prematurely, I thought it best to delete the partial version. Apologies for any inconvenience! :oops: Correct version follows below, unless there are any more typos I've missed!

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Oo Peter. I wonder if the English Mass there would have had stuff in Latin? Interspersed with the English. Or would it all have been in English. Go back next year and let me know. As well as Mass in English advertised on the web at the Prague church I couldn't find there was also one in Latin adver...

That reminded me that back in Blighty last Sunday was Corpus Chtisti. Mass in Prague was for the 9th Sunday, so presumably they celebrated Corpus Christi on Thursday. Knew I should have gone to Mass on Thursday before leaving England!

Re: Liturgical Tourism

My current bout of liturgical tourism started yesterday with a few hours between trains in Prague. The Czech Republic is reputedly the most atheist country in Europe and many of Prague's fine baroque churches seem to be used mainly as museums or concert halls, so I considered myself blessed to come ...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

There is already a thread on the Pentecost Sequence here: http://www.ssg.org.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1067&hilit=Pentecost+Sequence#p13232 , though confusingly it seems to talk more about the Pentecost Vigil than the Pentecost Sequence. To get back to the topic of this thread, before se...

Re: Saturday evening Masses

When in Lugano, Switzerland recently, I attended a Vigil Mass in a local church round the corner from where I was staying. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend a Sunday Morning Mass for comparison but on the Saturday I had the impression that they were making a commendable effort with limited resou...

Re: The Organist Entertains

Thanks, JW - loved it. :D I nearly turned off after the first one but let the player run on to the next (Good King Wenceslas meets Nutcracker), which is even better!

Re: Musical accompaniment on Good Friday

... can I ask ITom if he has used This is the Wood of the Cross by Paul Inwood? It is a great piece for Good Friday. A best. It might be in Laudate. It isn't in Laudate but it is in Music for the Mass 2 . I've also got it in a book called Lord by your Cross ... and Resurrection: Celebrating Holy We...

Re: Missal tones advice

My suggestion for what it's worth would be to start on F, so that the Mystery of Faith tone uses F, Ab and Bb. For all the theory about modal tones, you're writing a tonal piece and in that context the Bb you finish on sounds like a dominant inviting a start on your tonic Eb. By the same token, the ...

Re: The Preparation of the Gifts is not usually an appropria

... His answer was "dance, no; shimmy, yes"... Isn’t “shimmy” one of the words Bertie Wooster uses to describe the way Jeeves enters the room with a tray bearing a letter, telegram, cup of tea or whisky-and-soda? Not quite the same sort of preparation/presentation of gifts. I’m surprised ...

Re: The wickedness of face cream

Has anyone else heard a reference to Stow on the Wold at the end of EP3? It is just right for us in Clifton diocese, of course. No, but that may be because my almost PP invariably says EP2 (the shortest) - and, as it happens, the longest Penitential Act. Does that say something? And while I'm about...

'Fraid I can't help you with that computer problem, Oops, and it would probably be ruled off-topic if I did.

Re: lost in translation

Very "neat", Phil, but isn't this a candidate for the "Wickedness of Face Cream" thread - and an opportunity to remind readers of the other gems there?
