A friend in England sent a short video which I feel compelled to share.
We are at the little parish of St. Mary Magdalen in a rough area of greater London, Wandsworth, in the Archdiocese of Southwark. I’ve been there a couple times, once, memorably, in 2010 to help as deacon for a Requiem Mass with really interesting modern vestments. On that occasion I met Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society for the first time. The highly esteemed Fr. Martin Edwards is the parish priest, good value and expert mixologist. Fr. Martin has the TLM on Sundays, bless him. Father was a deacon at my ordination in Rome in 1991. Small world! One of his confreres was ordained with me.
My video sending friend wrote:
“A stirring rendition of Jerusalem after Mass today. Amazing what a live trumpet and a good organist can accomplish in a small chapel.”
That’s part of the point in posting this. Much can be done with little.
Cantare amantis est.
