Gentle Readers... hopefully you were one of those present for last evening's sublime Missa Cantata for Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
For those who could not make it, it was per usual, a beautiful, grace-filled affair with all the precision and attention that we have come to expect from Fr. Reid, the Servers, and Schola of St. Ann's.
Also, a surprise "cameo" appearance in coro by Rev. Mr. Jason Barone who chanted the evening's Epistle. Fr. Reid recognized him during the homily and confirmed what we had reported a number of weeks ago that soon-to-be Fr. Barone will offer is First Mass at St. Ann's as a Solemn High Mass on Sunday, June 3rd at 2.30pm.
I am hearing that the music for the Mass will be a combination of St. Ann's Schola Cantorum and the Charlotte-based Renaissance choral group. It is an event not to be missed.. and I would suggest arriving early!
Ascendit Deus in jubilatione, et Dominus in voce tubae, Alleluia!
