Here is one for your “brick by brick” file.
My friend, the distinguished Church musician Fr. Eduard Perrone, pastor at Assumption Grotto in Detroit, has written a Mass, to be used during the Christmas season, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The blog Te Deum has details and Fr. Perrone’s explanation to his choir about what is going on in the movements/parts of Mass.
The Mass will be used for the first time for Midnight Mass of Christmas, which begins – thanks be to God – at Midnight. Click HERE for more details.
With this Mass, Fr. Perrone, as a true Church musician, has made a real contribution to the identity of “pastoral musicians”. He has nudged the bar upward a couple notches.
If any of you are anywhere near Detroit when Masses will be offered with this new Mass by Fr. Perrone, I warmly encourage you to go and participate with the active participation that is listening.
Assumption Grotto is a treasure of the Archdiocese of Detroit and its deserves great attention and support.
