Thanks for that, Father. A fine souvenir!
Thank you, Father.
Thanks for both.
I have listened to Hail Holy Queen Four Times – and it still is not enough – WOW WOW WOW WOW
A somewhat nerdy question – what recording equipment was used?
I’m so glad God permitted the invention of kettle drums and allows their liturgical use! What an inspiring bit of music. Excellent sermon as well, Fr. John!
If you think that’s something, you should have heard the other four verses!
I have an IRiver mp3 player that records and to which I can join an external mike. It was set up on the pulpit whence I delivered the sermon and I just left it on. The mike picked up the ambient sound fairly well.
BTW, you all might enjoy knowing that sharp CLAP! you hear at the beginning of the recessional recording was the signal for the celebrant, deacon, subdeacon, priests in choir, thurifer, torch bearers, acolytes, and little girls of the Blessed Imelda Society to genuflect as one, turn from facing the altar, where they’d been singing to Our Lady, and process down the nave.
Can we do this again on Sunday?
For those who may be interested, I’ve posted some things
about this Mass at http://www.musicasacra.com, including
a link to this blog.
Thanks again, Father.
I don’t know, Father, you used a lot of “big words” in 3 languages (4
if I count your Italian pronunciation of: MAg-Neee-fee-kat!) and
advanced theological concepts in that Homily. Remember, U.S. Catholics
are dopes. I amazed you did not find a way to throw that really difficult
word: “consubstantial”, or the even more impossible: “dew” into the mix.
I’m shocked no one walked out. The congragation actually TRIED to follow it?
I’m just being a snark. Good stuff, Father.
In your Musica Sacra post you mention that “Harold Boatrite’s gorgeous Ave Maria … can be heard at Mater Ecclesiae’s website”. I have not been able to find it there; perhaps it has not yet been posted.
More generally, do you know whether more of the music for this Mass was recorded, and will be made available? This would seem a sure-fire way to raise funds to finance next year’s reiteration for the event. (I’d be willing to pay cash money just for the whole Hail Holy Queen.
It’s played when you enter the site. Try this link: Mater Ecclesiae. I’ve reloaded that page quite a few times in the past day.
I don’t believe this Mass was professionally recorded,
But this is my parish, and I’ll check to see if by some
miracle it has indeed been recorded and get back to you.
They might, might, might have videos from a few years back
when they were still doing video recording. The Hail,
Holy Queen would probably have been sung in those years, too.
Comment to Cathy of Alex –
I had no trouble following it or understanding it. But I wanted to have a hard copy to read as well and so I transcribed it and admit I could not spell a few greek and latin references. It was hard going back and forth from the MP3 recording to Word but I did get it done and it came out about 3 1/2 pages.
Believe me transcribing a homily does qualify for full, conscious participation and active receptivity. You listen to a sentence. You type it. You ponder it’s meaning.
Hmmm… that sounds like a lot of work. I will be putting it into shape for publication soon. Some parentheticals are in the sermon that aren’t in the text, however.
I only get an empty screen up when I click on the link, although I’ve been able to play MP3 files before. Anyone have an idea why I’m having trouble with this?
I’ll e mail you what I transcribed and then you can tell me if what I heard was what you said. I thought the way you linked the participation to the Magnificat was brilliant.
Laura – be patient. It takes a while before the blank screen loads the homily. It is a big file.
Thanks, Ekkehard, I’d be interested in knowing of either video or audio recordings.
Catholic Lady: I’m sending you a deep curtsy.
