“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]

Epiphany Proclamation 2018
published 23 December 2017 by Veronica Brandt

Adoration of the Magi HRISTMAS MEANS many things to many people. Some are preparing roast turkey, duck or goose (or all three!) Some are practising Christmas Carols. Some are sending dozens of Christmas Cards to friends and relatives.

As Christmas approaches I am typing up the Epiphany Proclamation.

It doesn’t take long once I get around to it. Often there are little quirks owing to developments in the software over the intervening months. It can be frustrating, but overall it gives that warm glow of a job well done. Or is that just the weather here?

I HEREBY ANNOUNCE the release of the Proclamation of Moveable Feasts for 2018.

Merry Christmas!
