I have to admit that I am somewhat baffled meself, but would note that Father Davies, the Rector at St. Thomas, was on staff at All Saints Margaret Street and presumably has been well-schooled in A/C practice. Perhaps a member of the parish could chime in on this one?

Liked that organ, though. The console used to be at the Stanford University Mem Chu (as those of us with Farm connections like to say) and some of the pipes came from the now-dismantled Fisk Organ in the Harvard Memorial Church (no abbreviations, please, we're from Harvard).

I remember Fr Davies from when he was curate at ASMS. I recall he was mildly, but delightfully eccentric.

The Diaconate ordination of a then good friend of mine (Now my postulant master!) Br.Joseph Eddy.

Unfortunately, the camera was set on top of the organ console in the choir loft, so the sound is'nt the best. (And it makes the organ sound terrible.)

Huh? The opening hymn on Easter Sunday was "Jerusalem the Golden?" That seems odd.
The choir make that funny sign of the cross where they end up with a tap on the chest. At school we were taught this was the "Hollywood' cross - a way of making the sign for the camera without really making it (if you follow).

I'm just now checking back on this thread. I'm sorry for not doing so sooner. I'll try to answer all questions.

It is a video of the 8:00 am Easter High Mass. I was in the congregation. There was a second such Mass at 10:30 am, doubtless packed to the rafters.

There are several reasons for the atypical use of "Jerusalem the Golden" as the processional hymn for Easter. I think the hymn tune itself is quite grand. With a full house of enthusiastic singers and that powerful organ, it's a wonder the church roof isn't lifted.

The hymn has nine verses, including one written by Fr. Davies, so it pretty well covers the procession.

I think that it's quite appropriate to sing about the new Jerusalem as part of the feast of the Resurrection. We did sing "Jesus Christ is Risen Today" and "The Day of Resurrection" later in the Mass.

Also, I'd venture a guess that the hymn is a kind of congregational favorite due to its use in the large number of Requiem Masses in the parish during the AIDS crisis.

Finally,I think it's safe to say that we love Fr. Davies, including (maybe even in part because of) his various little quirks.

I don't do the "Hollywood cross", but my impression is that it is common in Southern California TEC parishes, often with a kiss to the fingers after the tap on the chest.

I see it happen occasionally in the Midwest as well, in TEC places.

When I've seen the tap-with-kiss[-with-tap], it has been in Spanish-speaking RC places. I always assumed it was some sort of devotion to the Sacred Heart, but one knows what happens when one assumes...

Yeah, that little chest tap bit was popular when I was a Whiskeypalian. Now, not so much (at least among Anglo RCs).

CG, nice to hear from you again. By the way, I read in the St. Mark's Episcopal GR newsletter that their Rector is moving the "holy table" into the nave and that the summer liturgy will be from the Australian Prayer Book.

Thanks, Dave.

Of late, there has been very little good news coming from TEC in GR. I won't elaborate, of course, but there were much more serious problems recently at another parish.

We are very fortunate to have such a fine organ and organist. If you have not already had the opportunity to hear them both, I hope you will be able to do so some time in the future.

By the way, John West will be presenting a recital this Saturday at Glendale SDA Church.

You are very fortunate to be at St. Thomas -- Father Davies is an excellent rector and the music program looks like it is absolutely first rate.

TEC in the Dio of W. Michigan is probably a Purgatory topic. The mess at St. Luke's Kalamazoo is a topic in and of itself, but not for Ecclesiantics.

St. Silas -- I enjoyed the Diaconal ordination video very much.

By comparison, I attended the Diaconal ordination of 14 deacons in the LA Archiocese. It was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Beige Concrete (sorry, editorial comment there) with mass setting by the immortal Marty Haugen(Mass of Celebration -- uuuggghhh). One of my fellow choir members describes the cathedral as like attending Mass in the world's largest vet office. How true, how true.

I liked yours more.

Notre Dame has to hold the record for the largest crowd of American Catholics actually singing. Whenever I've seen a mass from there on TV or online, the majority have actually been singing. I suppose it helps that the music is well-chosen and well-done. (They even managed to do the Haas Gloria well, and somehow worked in the organ.)

Bishop Jenky confirmed a friend of mine. He's a bit more gray now!

The liturgy was superb, as one can expect from the basilica at ND. Churches from across the country should take field trips there.

We do do joy quite well, I think! I went to the diocesan ordinations in Westminster Cathedral last week and everyone was very well done, but it just wasn't a 'family affair' like our ordinations are.

Indeed. I didn't link to all of them, but I hope people take a look! There are plenty. While it's clear they are of an LCMS/conservative leaning, there is still a sense of humor about this. (FWIW, my church does not have a pink chasuble, but I'm tempted now to purchase one for them!)

Opening and closing hymns from the 90th birthday celebration of Bishop Montgomery.

[n.b. Bishop Montgomery is a former bishop of Chicago, and you will notice his Anglo-Catholic tendencies, and those of the Church of the Atonement, in which the Mass was celebrated. I can't make out the other bishop's identity, but it looks like a blurry Frank Griswold, the next bishop of Chicago after Montgomery and later the Presiding Bishop. Crowd notwithstanding, this is a fairly decent window into the Chicago Rite II scene.]

Martin's commentary: I love Bishop Montgomery's 10-gallon mitres. Always a joy to see. I wish I had been there live.

Thank you for this, Martin L...a glimpse inside the neighborhood parish. Funnily enough, the first two people whose faces I saw in the opening video are fellow parishioners of our shack downtown. The nun in procession (more visible in the Hail Holy Queen vid) is the superior of the convent next to our church. Sorry I missed this grand celebration: I think it was both a vestry and subdeacon Sunday for me downtown.

If you've ever wondered what an ELCA Lutheran (sister church in full communion to TEC) service runs like, you can view such here:

ELCA Churchwide Assembly video feed

The archives seem to be at near the bottom of the page.

The opening Holy Communion from Monday was kept as Mary, Mother of our Lord. Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson is presiding and preaching. The lectors are higher-ups at Churchwide HQ. Apparently we have perfected the art of bendy poles, squeezing even more streamers onto each.

Yes, that's Griswold. It looks like it was a splendid celebration. James Montgomery will always be "Father Montgomery" to me, since he was rector at St John's Flossmoor when I were a lass. He taught my confirmation class and our little textbook was a thoroughly A/C little book.

Nice job on "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty," especially the goosebump-inducing descant on the final verse. I'm afraid "Hail, Holy Queen" just makes me think of that Whoopi Goldberg film, though.

Just discovered about a charming forty-minute show on the churches of East Anglia by Sir John Betjeman. "Passion for Churches" seemed to me in one part, a show on church architecture and in another, a meditation on what it means to be in the C of E.

I enjoyed it, especially since Norwich/East Anglia is next on list of places to travel to at some point in my life [Yipee]

Part I
Part II
Part III

(Part of the second video are filmed in the Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham.)

Here are some photographs from the feast of the Dormition/Assumption of the Mother of God last Sunday. This was at the Russian Orthodox cathedral of the Dormition in London, which was celebrating its patronal feast, hence the blessing of the waters before the Liturgy and the Cross-Procession afterwards. There were at least three shipmates in attendance.

We didn't bless herbs: we don't want to be seen to be too high church, now.

Videos photos and homilies from the profession of final vows of one of my brothers in community, the (now) Rev. Mr. Matt Kuczora, CSC.

Some of the photos give a wonderful view of the solar panel for my brain (I'm carrying a candle). As a side note, you can tell how much of a football school we're at: our practice of forming a semi circle outside the basilica to welcome the newly finally professed (or newly ordained in the Spring) is referred to as the "victory formation."

The boy choirsters and the ars celebrandi of the clergy are pretty good, but the key point of interest starts shortly after the 9:45 mark. I wonder how many other churches do this?

Thanks for the clip. My early experiences with the Mass in Spanish were mostly with priests who (on their own, off the cuff) used Ustedes instead of vosotros for the plural. Only one used vosotros, as far as I can recall, but that was in a Mexican-American context. It still throws me off to hear vosotros and its imperative verbs--tomad, comed, haced, etc. To an English ear, it would be sort of like a priest changing all the expected thees and thous to yous off the cuff. Slightly jarring.

Live broadcast for the instilation of Philadelphia's new archbishop at 2:00 Pm. Link. Shame it's a ticketed event, the music looks absolutely glorious. The new cathedral choirmaster has really been outdoing himself in the short time he's been here.

Thank you, Michael Astley, for those photographs. I always find the greeting and the vesting of the bishop very moving. We greet him as he enters into his church. We vest him, confirming him as our bishop.

As far as your blessing of the police goes: there's a symbol with some freight.

St. Silas: Totally agree on the music selected for the installation of Archbishop Chaput. Excellent variety, and very nice to see local composers tapped to write music for it. Some Proulx (nothing wrong with that) some Walker (not quite Proulx, but much better than Haugen) and overall much more impressive than what LA did with Archbishop Gomez' installation.

Also interesting to see Anglican music (Tye and Wesley) used in the service.

Yes, Mr.Romeri is quite competent. Besides forming the new professional cathedral schola to sing along with the cathedral choir,he's also helped to begin choral and organ scholarships at the cathedral and a great set of Concerts at the cathedral.

I was also happy to see the Wesley- Thou Wilt Keep Him is one of my favorite pieces of music.Anglican type music is pretty normal at the cathedral these days.I'm excited to see what he'll do with the boy's choir when the current director retires in a year.

I'm pretty sure that I've seen this before too, but I can't remember where, exactly. I see nothing wrong with dimming the lights except for a spotlight on the preacher, so long as any makeup isn't blinding or he starts belting out "Mr. Cellophane" from the pulpit.

Well, yes. We just take that for granted. I used to chuckle at the old people falling asleep. Now I don't notice it.....
