I thank our Lord for this good, orthodox man He has given us.
Even his name is appropriate. Like St. Benedict of Nursia, Benedict XVI is preparing the Christian world to resist the upcoming dark ages…
I’ll keep on praying for him.
Now Father David Silk was ordained today at Buckfast Abbey. Praise God for all these good people coming in.
Prayers for all of my former brethren.
Anglican Patrimony. Music! Hopefully we will get a plenty Anglican Use Ordinariate parishes here in the US.
Such wonderful news! More Anglican priests ‘crossing the Tiber’!
Congratulations to the two former Bishops on their priestly ordinations!
Yes, becket1! I quite agree! Thanks for the video!
You found a wonderful piece-“I Was Glad’ by Parry-and a wonderful occasion-Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee service at St. Paul’s Cathedral!
Ad Multos Annos!
Not only Parry, Bairstow, Howells, Stanford, and all the rest of the Victorian/Edwardian English,
but also Byrd, Tallis, Purcell, Farrant, Gibbons, Tye and Weelkes. The English Renaissance composers as a whole achieved the most perfect marriage of text and music in the English language.
I wish Weelkes were better known. My favorite anthem of his, “Alleluia: I heard a voice” is nowhere to be found on YouTube. It not only sounds magnificent, it is a great pleasure to sing (but you have to be paying attention).
Tallis: If ye love me, keep my commandments (this motet is praised by our music director as having the most musical payout for a given level of effort in the English repertoire. A good one to start with if your choir is new to the English Renaissance.
Farrant: Hide not thou thy face, O Lord
Weelkes: When David heard that Absalom was slain”
The Weelkes as it begins sounds very similar to the Thomas Tompkins setting of the same text, but they go in very different directions after about 8 bars. Both are (of course) fabulous.
