First Masses of Term

We have sung two Masses so far: for St Joseph the Workman in St Anthony of Padua -


and for the Ascension (on the Thursday!) at the Oxford Oratory.

Both went extremely well; we had polyphony for the first, Byrd's three-part Mass, and in the second we used for the first time the Medieval offertory verses which were reintroduced to the modern repertoir by the Solesmes research in the early 20th Century.

Technological problems and time constraints have prevented my from recording videos at these Masses but I hope to remedy this for future Masses.
