Wonderful Liturgies

It is not everyday you get to celebrate liturgies like this, but here we are five days into this chant workshop and the liturgies have been pretty special. This music is definitely made for prayer. I had never sung Mass IX before and it is exceptionally beautiful.

Fr. Lawrence Heiman, C.PP.S.

Fr. Larry Heiman, CPPS is a treasure. He is 86, and getting a bit frail, but when he conducts the chant he has the energy of a youth. He embodies the prayer and is a wonder to observe.

Today he chanted the entire liturgy. It was my privilege to assist him, and to preach.

Here is the music for today, for the Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist. Most of the music came from the feast day as it is found in the Proper oif Saints in the Graduale Romanum.
