(back) Subject: All Saints' Day observances (X-posted) From: bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 16 Sep 1999 08:01:21 -0700   A couple of questions: the Eve of All Saints' falls on a Sunday this year ... how many are observing it then, rather than on the 7th (which is what the anglo-catholic Ordo Kalendar call for)? It would seem logical to me to do it on the 31st, since the Vigil of All Saints' is a liturgical day, and closer to the day itself than the "Sunday Within the Octave".   Someone mentioned that he was planning a "requiem-type" observance ... I've run across this fairly frequently in Anglican churches ... they seem to combine All Saints' Day with All Souls' Day (Nov. 2). The new Prayer Book has both days, I believe; for Roman Catholics, of course, there's no question ... they are two separate observances. But in MANY Anglican churches, the names of those who have died in the past year are read out from the Altar on Nov. 1, the church bell is tolled, and the hymns are things like "Hark! Hark! My Soul", "Let Saints On Earth In Concert Sing", "Now The Labourer's Task Is O'er", etc. BTW, there's a gorgeous TUNE to that in the 1940, but the orthodox WORDS have to be gotten from the English Hymnal.   We're having Confirmation on the 31st (Privileged Votive Mass of the Holy Ghost for pastoral reasons, or so runs the rubric), so the Rector elected to have Solemn Evensong on Nov 1 AND Nov 2 (we get to sing Placebo of the Dead on Nov 2 for the first time) and have the Mass of All Saints' on Nov. 7th.   I'm curious as to what other places are doing.   Cheers,   Bud   P.S. - I've never SUNG Placebo, believe it or not ... are there any special rubrics, other than omitting the Preces and the Gloria Patri?

Also a piece called "Hornpipe Humoresque" which no organist = should be without!!!   On the "Silly Toccata's" subject, the recital that my organ teacher does most years uses a lot of material from a Kevin Mayhew book called "Encore" which has many light transcriptions (The Entertainer, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Swan (carnival of the animals) etc) in it.   For light music I would say Kevin Mayhew is pretty good,   Richard

We have to do = Festival of the Reformation on the 31st (or the preceding Sunday, but this year that's moot); it's the only day on the calendar that nobody else in Christendom is likely to observe, at least officially--except for our June 25 "Presentation [to Charles V] of the Augsburg Confession." So that = means that for us All Saints cannot be anticipated, and this year will get its Sunday treatment on the 7th--which is, admittedly, rather late. We don't = do All Souls at all, so it's not a serious problem for us.   Alan

Being Methodist, everything gets moved to the closest Sunday. I'm actually going out on a limb doing our Jazz Requiem on Sunday afternoon.

The "requiem" we are singing is not a mass setting, but rather combines traditional requiem texts (Requiem Aeternam, Kyrie, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, In Paradisum) with two or three texts by Kalil Gibran. This was composed several years ago by David York (Portland OR, I think). It is quite nice and works well in non-liturgical situations.   This year I will miss playing ALL of the masses of observance for All Saints & All Souls.

I took my 2 boys to the boat dock to experience the sheer power of the storm, about 2 hours before the eye came over us. To make this listworthy, 8-), the wind at the dock maintained a pitch of "D" below middle c throughout our stay. We did cancel our adult choir and bell rehearsals, because we just didn't know how bad it would be. Turned out not to be so bad, but it was nice to be w/ my family today. I am still awed by the amazing forces of nature and yet, how still in complete control our great God is. I know this wasn't very organic, but it seemed right to share it w/ you.
