MUSIC FOR HOLY MASS

13th Sunday of Ordinary Time - June 28, 2009, 9:30 AM
St. Joan of Arc Church, Cumberland, RI


No cantor today. The organist sang alone from the console, something I haven't seen in quite some time ANYWHERE. Believe me, it's NOT a bad thing when your organist can sing. I actually went to an interview at a church in North Kingstown about a year and a half ago (about a month after I was sacked from the ghosthouse), which was run by a bunch of nutcase lefty ladies who said to me "you sing from the console?!" like it was a bad thing. It's not.

Anyhoo, here's the list:

"Lauda Anima"...Praise, my soul, the King of heaven (nice!)
Alstott...I will praise you, Lord / Alleluia (both from Respond and Acclaim) / Heritage Mass (except Agnus Dei)
Mass XVIII...Agnus Dei
Quaker...How can I keep from singing
- (or from the Titanic, "How can I keep from sinking", or from the guy with the nasty B.O. problem, "How can I keep from stinking")

The offertory and communion were instrumentals.
Peace,

I like the Quaker thing. Except that there are so many derivations of it...and the St. Michael hymnal version sucks. So, if the kids at CTK learn this as part of their curriculum inclusion of music of other faiths, they'll learn the better version....
