Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
So many memories of choir as an undergraduate!! ROFL thanks Father! :D
Fr Tim:Still have my original 45rpm of it. Funny then, funy now.And it is exactly how they used to sing and pronounce in many Anglican choirs. good that they could send themselves.Thanks for stirring the memory.
It just goes to show that you can chant *anything*.
(and thanks for the site stat spike...I've been feeling lonely and unloved in Blogland lately.)
That's so funny, thanks. As hard as I try not to, I will always have a soft spot for Anglican chant.I used to think the Coverdale translation to be the finest in English. However, maybe the chant had something to do with it.In an episode of Inspector Morse, he informs Lewis that Italian is such a beautiful language, one could read a shopping list in the language and it would sound poetic. I think a similar thing is at play here, but with Anglican chant.
Made me homesick, Father! Luckily I will be flying home after my Christmas Masses for the Octave. Happy Christmas!
Such dry humor about reading the signs of the times as we stand before God. Not bad, that. But I'll remain Catholic and American.Father George
...Glory be to the sunshine, and to the rain, and to the scatter-ed showers; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, A-a-men.
Actually Liz and I have often written speeches for weddings and celebrations and set them to chant. Always goes down well.
Beautiful. Stirs (mostly) happy memories of being a little Anglican chorister.
This brings to mind the King Singers "chanting" the Highway Code. I wonder if I can still get a copy ?
Peter - it is on YouTube. I saw it the other day on someone's blog but lost the link...
I think this is one slideshow with the Highway Code?
