    I love this, but as a father of young children my heart goes out to all the parents in the congregation who, after toiling slavishly through the Blessing of the Fire, the Blessing of the Pascal candle, the Exultet, and the reading of the propheies, had just finally managed to get their fidgety baby to fall asleep.

    The Haydn “Missa in angustiis” – the “Nelson” Mass. Love it. And what spectacular organ-playing after the intonation!! The Oratory choir is superb and I always look forward to attending Mass there when in London. I have a cd of their Holy Week music which I listen to every year.

    That’ll teach people to sleep through the first half of the vigil.

    Interesting choice of mass (Haydn’s “In Angustiis”)…. Could it be in response to current (turbulent) world events?

    Many thanks for posting this, Father. A glorious Gloria indeed!

    Jaykay and Kurtmasur (Your nom de BLOG honors a remarkable and much-missed Conductor!); I agree, this particular Haydn Mass was well-chosen. I am hoping that The Oratory Schola will one day record it as well as other orchestra Masses.
