As this Saturday was the first in the month, we had our usual visiting schola along to sing the Missa Cantata at Our Lady of the Rosary. As it was also the anniversary of Fr. Adolph Koch, first Parish Priest of Blackfen, it was decided to celebrate a Requiem Mass for him, with Absolutions at the catafalque.
The Mass was very moving: I definitely want my funeral Mass to be in the Extraordinary Form, unbleached candles and all.
I took loads of photos with my snazzy digital camera - I didn't even try to use my mobile phone camera, as the quality of camera on the iPhone is really pants! I then arranged them all into a slide show which I set to music - Mass XVIII from Nick Gale's educational CD, as it so happens... he told me I could use bits of it for my videos, and you can order the CD from this website.
