(back) Subject: Late Report on Vigil at SJE (humorous) From: <DERREINETOR@aol.com> Date: Thu, 31 Mar 2005 13:51:06 EST   Dear List,   Having somewhat recovered from Easter, I'll share this synopsis of our = Easter Vigil at St. John's, Bowdoin Street (Be advised, this is all true, but = tongue is in cheek a bit here--we all need a chuckle):   The Rt. Rev. Gayle Harris, Bishop Suffragan of Massachusetts, = pontificated. The Sermon was given by the Rev. Louise Forrest. The Exultet and Prayers = of the People were chanted by the Rev. Deacon Daphne Noyes. The Litany of the = Saints in Procession to the Baptismal Font was led by yours truly, sporting a = smart red cassock and embroidered surplice by Almy, with organ pumps by OrganMasters, size 10.   Five plainchant pslams were chanted following the Vigil readings, all = without incident. The "In exitu Israel" following the Alleluia suffered from a temporary dissonance in Verse 1 when the "G" reciting tone of the second = half of the Tonus Peregrinus was sung as an "A" by some choir members in a valiant = effort to convince the others singing "G" that they were correct, when, of = course, they were in error. The psalm did recover, however. As a result, this = psalm tone will now be refered to at St. John's as the "Tonus Chagrinus". I will = be improvising on this psalm tone at communion each week until Pentecost = inclusive, occasionaly with bitonal references to the Vigil debacle.   The Ordinary of the Mass was Proulx's "Community Mass", with plainchant Fraction Anthem replacing the "Agnus Dei".   The Anthem at the Offertory was "Easter" from "Five Mystical Songs" by R. Vaughan Williams. The Communion Motet was the Pitoni "Cantate Domino".   The Mass concluded with "Jesus Christ is Risen Today", in procession to = the street where Easter Blessings over the City and a Pontifical Easter = Blessing were given by Bishop Harris. There followed a festive ringing of the 4 = tower bells, which lasted long enough for four people who were well acquainted = with one another to exhaust one topic of conversation while making sure everyone = had their say. We stopped ringing just on the cusp of mutual boredom, but not before breaking a sweat.   The entire service clocked in at 2 hours, 52 minutes. The opulent dinner which followed was marred only by an unusually scarce supply of wine, = which resulted in the eventual migration of some of us to the local public house = in order to slake our prodigious thirst predicated by the excellent food and so = much singing and a four-alarm performance by the Thurifer.   With tongue in cheek, Pax, Bill H SJE, Boston
