Polyphony for Our Lady and Bl J.H. Newman

The schola sang for the Pilgrimage to Littlemore organised jointly by the LMS, Juventutem Oxford and the Oxford Newman Society. Here are some videos from Mass, which was a votive Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with variations for Paschal time.

The Mass propers are mostly modern, though as is usual they are based on earlier chants. The only one which appears in the 1908 Gradual is the first of the Alleluias.

Introit, and Brumel Kyrie

Offertory, Exsultavit, followed by a polyphonic motet, Brumel's Sub tuum praesidium.
