Holy Week 2014

The music list remains more or less constant, as found here with links to recordings.

This year we add:

the offertory and communion chants from the Graduale at the (OF) Easter Vigil and the Memorial Acclamation and Our Father ( Rimsky-Korsakov.)

Ash Wednesday

Attende Domine
Jesu dulcis memoria

This year we add some more of the propers done properly.

Thanks to stirling work done by MrMC excavating the music cupboard, various goodies that had been buried are now being used. His finds include two more Libers and a complete set of organ accompaniments for the Propers.

A visitation

Yesterday, we were graced with a visit from some seminarians of L'instut du bon pasteur, in the UK for some days.

Three of them sang the Propers for us, as well as some polyphony and also provided organ interludes.

An altogether edifying presence.

Hopefully they will visit us again.

We did


Lumen ad revelationem gentium
Exsurge, Domine

We processed around the sunny car park, whilst singing
Adorna thalamum
Responsum accepit Simeon

Three times each, to a psalm tone. ( Tssh. This is an ordinary suburban parish, like the one down the road from you, and this is a work in progress. Next year, more will be added.)

Obtulerunt pro eo Domino

Then Mass started and we sang
The Propers
Mass IX ( which we spent a lot of time practising in the Autumm and sang four times between Sept and Dec8.)
Credo I
Ave Maris Stella
Pange lingua


Alma Redemptoris Mater for the last time til it comes round again.
