For those of you in the area of Camden, NJ, you might think about coming to this splendid event which I attended a couple years ago. There will be a Solemn TLM in the Cathedral of Camden sponsored by the Mater Ecclesiae Traditional Mass community in Berlin, NJ, where Fr. Robert Pasley is Rector
This will be the 8th annual Solemn Assumption Mass beginning at 7:00PM on Friday, 15 August 15 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Broadway and Market Streets, Camden, NJ.
Dr. Timothy McDonnell, Director of Music at Ave Maria University, Naples Florida, will conduct the polyphonic music for the Mass and Mr. Nicholas Beck, the Music Director of Mater Ecclesiae, will lead the Gregorian Propers of the Mass.
The musical selections are as follows: The Ordinary of the Mass is the Messa della Cappella (1641), by Claudio Monteverdi. Other selections: Canzon XII a 8, Giovanni Gabrielli; Sonata Sopra “Sancta Maria”, C. Monteverdi; Venite Populi and Sonata #12 in C major, K 263, W.A. Mozart; Pulchra est amica mea, Palestrina-Bassano; Ave Maria, Harold Boatrite; Hymns – Repeat My Soul, Walter Greatorex and Sing We of the Blessed Mother, Timothy McDonnell. We are also honored to have in attendance, a long time friend of Mater Ecclesiae and pastor of St. Athanasius Parish, Philadelphia, the Bishop Elect of the Diocese of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Reverend Monsignor Herbert Bevard.
Yours truly will preach.
