“Since the ability of Francisco Guerrero is now abundantly known to all […] he shall henceforth act as master of the boys so long as: ( 1) he must teach them to read, write, and to sing the responsories, versicles, antiphons, lessons, and kalends, and other parts of divine service; (2) he shall teach them plainchant, harmony, and counterpoint, his instruction in counterpoint to include both the art of adding a melody to a plainsong and to an already existing piece of polyphonic music; (3) he shall always clothe them decently and properly, see that they wear good shoes, and ensure that their beds are kept perfectly clean; (4) he shall feed them the same food that he himself eats and never take money from them for anything having to do with their services in church or their musical instruction…” [cont’d]

What? Sundays after Pentecost?
published 15 October 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

OR THE FINAL SUNDAYS after Pentecost, something funky happens in the Extraordinary Form. The propers are repeated over and over, but the readings are taken from various Sundays after Epiphany, depending on how many “extra” Sundays occur. In the CAMPION MISSAL, there’s an explanation chart, and then every possible Sunday is fully written out (even extremely rare ones) making things easy on the congregation.

Here’s that chart, with the key sentence highlighted in yellow:

209 Sundays after Pentecost

Be careful this year.

25 October is Christ the King Sunday (replacing the 22nd Sunday after Pentecost). The next Sunday (November 1st) is the feast of All Saints. Then, 8-Nov, 15-Nov, and 22-Nov use the same propers. Your Schola Cantorum will probably get pretty good at these…

For the record, here’s what Fr. Adrian Fortescue has to say about “Sundays after Trinity” vs. “Sundays after Pentecost” :
