"New Gregorian Chant Is Finally Up"

The Gloria will be chanted again on Holy Thursday @ The Mass Of The Last Supper, so the "Kyrie" is there for your contemplative pleasure:

Gregorian Chant, the Official Music of this site & the sweetest & coolest music in creation, wiil be changed in accordance with the Sacred Seasons of The Church, so one can meditate on my various rants about the Boston Red Sox, the NY Mets & my highly-critical rants about the NY Yankees;


Pax Vobiscum!

Hey Michael, it might interest you to know that a very courageous person (not me) has started a Gregorian chant schola at one of our local parishes. Through persistence, she is overcoming resistance and downright hostility, especially from the other "music" people; and though we don't have a director as such yet, and we don't have any regularly scheduled Masses or other services, we are using the interval to master the music, and are making splendid progress. The schola doesn't have a name yet, but a friend of mine suggested calling it the "Vatican II Schola," since Sacrosanctum Concilium clearly states that Gregorian chant is to maintain pride of place in the liturgy.

For myself, although I sing in the Cathedral Choir, I felt a little out of my comfort zone when I started singing with the schola, because most of our music is in medieval notation, and also because, whereas I am an alto, I have to be a soprano for most of the chant. But every time we rehearse the Credo or Te Deum, I can't help feeling floored that anybody could seriously prefer Marty Haugen and Bernadette Farrell to it.

By the way, one of my favorite pieces -- because it's my favorite title for Our Lady -- is Ave Maris Stella.

In What # Protestant Denomination is Marty Haugen, anyway?

"Hail Mary, Star Of The Sea", as Translated, from "AVE Maris Stella":

Since when does "Corporis et Sanguinis", translate as "Mercy & Love?"

Probably about the same time pro multis started meaning "for all."

Welcome Back:

I now find that part of the appeal of this blog is not only Baseball, especially the Red Sox, but the wider audience, much of which is Catholic;
