Juventutem Mass in London, again

We sang again for the Good Counsel Network and Juventutem London. We were singing from the back of the Church so the sound isn't very good (the camcorder was at the front!) but it was a good Mass. Our polyphonists sang Obrecht's 'Missa Fors seulement'.

Here's the Introit (Audivit Dominus: Friday after Ash Wednesday) and the Kyrie

The Gradual Unam petii

Obrecht's Sanctus and Benedictus.

See some photos.

Videos of the Feast of St Chad

We were privileged to sing at the inaugral Mass of Juventutem Oxford, a new group for young people attached to the Traditional Mass. They are affiliated to Young Catholic Adults, who are the UK affiliate of the Juventutem Federation.

It was the feast of St Chad, a first class feast in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. His relics are kept in Birmingham's St Chad's Cathedral. We sang the propers, the Second Mass of a Confessor Bishop, and a polyphonic ordinary: Heinrich Isaac's Missa pro Confessoribus.

Introit Sacerdotes tui and Isaac Kyrie

Gradual Sacerdotes and Tract Beatus vir.

Offertory Veritas mea with verses.

Heinrich Isaac's Sanctus and Benedictus

Isaac Agnus Dei

Communion antiphon Beatus vir, followed by a polyphonic version of the vespers hymn for a Confessor, Iste Confessor, by Victoria.
