Chant and stuff

....say a little prayer for me tomorrow. I am asked to cantor one of the more intricate, difficult and most beautiful passages in the entire Gradual. The Messine Paleography is quite beautiful, but quite a turn of the vocal chords. The Improperia from Good Friday is probably one of the oldest pieces of chant we have, since some of it is still in Greek. I am a bit amazed that Fr. Heiman has put this kind of trust in me.

No blogging until I get back to Chicago late Wednesday.

Thursday is the Solemnity of the Most Precious Blood in our community Ordo

I am in Chicago July 1-8, then I am on the road until July 30, Houston, Phoenix, Cincinnati, St. Louis, and then California. After my first weekend in the parish July 31/Aug 1st, I fly to Rennsellaer, IN for a retreat August 2-6.

I preside at the 5:00 and 9:00pm mass this coming weekend at Calvert
