Don't forget to attend, if you can, Cardinal Burke's celebration of the LMS' Annual Requiem: tomorrow, 14th November, 2pm Westminster Cathedral.
|Fr John Saward celebrated a Missa Cantata for All Souls in SS Gregory & Augustine's, Oxford
I sang at both, and also at the Requiem in St Benet's which came in between. The chants of the Requiem don't grow stale; I'd be happy to sing them, for the good of the souls in purgatory, a hundred times.
|Fr Paul Lester celebrated a Missa Cantata for Remembrance Sunday in Holy Trinity, Hethe.
The culture which produced these chants valued the contributions, the hard work and the sacrifice, of its decesased members. A society which does value theswe things will not find its current members motivated to make much of an effort to sustain it. Why should they bother? Such a society is heading for the scrapheap.
