A further update, This will be the post-communion meditation! However, watch the whole thing, because what this guy is doing is rather amazing, but you won't know it until the end! It is impressive to say the least!
This is an important update to 1980's experiences!
From 1980 to 1985 I was stationed at St. Teresa of Avila Church in Albany, Georgia. Our Folk Mass was the most popular (although fewer in the congregation actually would sing compared to our traditional Mass earlier in the morning, but I digress). When I hear this music it takes me back to my happy first few years in Albany! But thank God for the rupture in music that has occurred in the Church since these marvelous days. The hermeneutic of rupture can give birth to beautiful liturgical music. We need to explore the hermeneutic of rupture as a positive thing rather than just negative! But also shouldn't the reform of the reform include the hermeneutic of continuity and shouldn't we reinstate these cool tunes at Mass here once again out of a concern for the hermeneutic of continuity?
This is a great entrance chant!
This is a stunning offertory anthem!
The Great Amen (I thought it would last forever too!)
This is a great Communion Processional, so march like!
Such a nice recessional:
