Papal Mass preparations

evelyn @ 11:37 am

I’m back, and find that things are well underway musically in our archdiocese for the big event.

Katherine Cameron, Forth in Praise web-keeper and IT specialist, has been working hard.  Among other things, she has posted some MP3 files of the choral parts of the MacMillan Mass which were made in England and which will be very useful as practice aids.  She’s also organised a major singing practice in St Francis Xavier church in Falkirk on 28 August, to be led by Emma Turnbull, Director of Music in St Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh. More details of all this on the Papal Mass page.

My holiday was very good, with several interesting religious experiences.  No, I don’t mean visions or revelations.  Just going to Mass in different places abroad, and finding out how other people deal with the musical side of the liturgy.  But that can wait for another post.
