“In 1854 John Mason Neale co-founded an order of women dedicated to nursing the sick. Many Anglicans in his day, however, were very suspicious of anything suggestive of Roman Catholicism. Only nine years earlier, John Henry Newman had encouraged Catholic practices in Anglican churches and had ended up becoming a Roman Catholic. This encouraged the suspicion that anyone such as Neale was an agent of the Vatican, assigned to destroy Anglicanism by subverting it from within. Once, Neale was attacked and mauled at a funeral of one of the Sisters. From time to time unruly crowds threatened to stone him or to burn his house.”

Rehearsal Videos • Guerrero “Agnus Dei” (SSATB)
published 17 May 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

NE OF THE MANY things participants will learn at the upcoming Sacred Music Symposium is how to produce rehearsal videos. Below you’ll find Guerrero’s AGNUS DEI (“Missa Iste Sanctus”) for which I recorded all the voices, including both Soprano lines. I usually apologize for my Soprano notes (I’m a Baritone), and there are two Soprano lines. But I’m not going to apologize twice—do you understand why?

REHEARSAL VIDEOS for each individual voice await you at #5512.

The internet has damaged the attention span of many people, and this can be a source of frustration to those of us who blog. I have frequently indicated a special website where you can sing along with each individual voice—yet many still do not realize what’s available there. So I will keep repeating it, and hopefully everyone will eventually bookmark that website.

By the way, that website also contains Mp3 files. YouTube compresses the audio files, making them sound horrible. The Mp3 versions sound much nicer.
