Over at Holy Family Church in NYC (aka "The United Nations Parish"), I got to hear something cool. This file will be up for the week at the parish's website.
Paul Murray, the organist/music director at Holy Family, is really good. Often times, the procession itself is longer than the entire entrance hymn, so he's gotta do a little improving between verses. What really interested me in this week's webcast was how he incorporated movement II from Francois Couperin's Mass for the Convents in between verses 2 and 3 during the entrance hymn (When John baptized by Jordan's river, the tune being "Rendez a Dieu" by Louis Bourgeois). Groovy!
Thanks for that recording. That was quite, quite smooth. By the way, I wrote on Couperin today! Great minds think alike as they say.
