“In all this mediaeval religious poetry there is much that we could not use now. Many of the hymns are quite bad, many are frigid compositions containing futile tricks, puns, misinterpreted quotations of Scripture, twisted concepts, whose only point is there twist. But there is an amazing amount of beautiful poetry that we could still use.”
— Rev. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

FSSP.la Choir Communiqué • 8 January 2015
published 8 January 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

Number 1

The musical resources for this coming Sunday, 11 January (Holy Family) are HERE.

Number 2

We have agreed to meet at 6:00pm on Sunday. We must remember to each take a Grey Hymnal, since we will sing the ENTRANCE hymn and EXIT hymn from this Grey Hymnal.

Number 3

Needless to say, it would be wonderful if we all could learn 100% of the music for this Sunday. However, there is a priority. More than anything else, please practice the piece by Lhoumeau. After that, please practice the Victoria Agnus Dei. After that, please practice the Gradual & Alleluia.

The secret phrase is: «LHOUMEAU first, THEN Victoria, THEN Gradual & Alleluia»

Number 4

You will notice the Victoria practice files are not posted on the website. That’s because these are private files not to be shared. They have been emailed to you.

Number 5

On that website, you’ll find “Robot” files to practice the Lhoumeau.

I’ve also emailed you Voice Files for the Lhoumeau which are not to be shared.

Can you please tell me which files you like better? Can you please tell me which ones help you more? Thank you!!!
