Hi Mary

What a deeply moving thread you have published here. I didnít see the Mass on television but how wonderful it is to see the Credo written out here in Latin. I wonder if the choir at the Holy Rosary C/Bar used to sing it to Claudio Casciolini's work? He wrote a full Mass and I know it used to be regularly sung in most RC churches here in the UK before Vatican II changed so much of the litany. I also used to sing the same Mass at a large London church which was blessed with extremely good acoustics, a wonderful organ and a very good choir. I also once heard it being sung by the choir of Notre Dame in Paris. The Gloria was sung antiphonally, the celebrant singing the plainsong melody and the congregation replying in the same vein. The Kyrie is inutterably beautiful and sung in four parts, as is the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. It gives one a glimpse of another dimension and is a most moving act of worship. I still attend a Latin Mass at the Sacred Heart in Wimbledon, London. You might care to look at the parish web site Amongst other details, you might like to check out the music thread. Thanks for reminding me of some very moving occasions.

With best wishes

John Wood
