SUNDAY, MAY 28, 2006 - 11 AM on WLNE Channel 6 (Providence RI/New Bedford MA)
The Seventh Sunday of Easter (taped yesterday 5/20, will air 5/28)

We'll see how much editing will be done between the TV station and the Fall River diocesan communications department. Mind you, this Mass only gets a half-hour slot on TV.
Celebrant: Fr. Thomas Kocik, author of The Reform of the Reform?

Introit: Mode I - Exaudi, Domine, vocem meam (Gregorian Missal, page 387, antiphon only)
Penitential Rite and Gloria recited (again - that push from officials: HALF HOUR)
Responsorial Psalm: Tone 8G - The Lord has set his throne in heaven
Alleluia: Mode II - from O Filii et Filiae (verse sung in English)

Offertory: Mode I - Ascendit Deus in jubilatione (Gregorian Missal, page 389)
Eucharist: Jubilate Deo
Lord's Prayer: recited
Communion: UNDE ET MEMORES - Lord, who at thy first Eucharist didst pray (Music Issue, #356)

Recessional: (organ postlude) Campra - Rigaudon, first 16 bars (just enough to cover)

Side note: Fr. Kocik does a great Mass. I took no dough. Instead, I took pride in helping Fr. Kocik promote the reform of the reform on the small screen, and hearing music you hardly hear in the Fall River Diocese, sad to say. The organ in the chapel we taped at, however, is a Hammond. You be the judge: instrument or appliance? I also heard the tail end of a previous taping (which probably aired today), celebrated by a different priest. The usuals - Massive Cremation, and the out hymn was Rescucito! rendered on the organ like a tango. If I wanted to hear that kind of trash, I would have put on my dad's old Herb Alpert/Tijuana Brass albums and kicked back at my desk (Herb was a killer trumpeter in his day too, so don't think I don't like his music; just not at church).

Peace,
BMP

It would be cool to know how it'll play once the editors get through with it. Do keep us posted on this!

I will make sure to tape it since I will be playing for my own Mass at 11.

You are right about that organ. I have played it many times and it is a sorry excuse for an instrument.
