Music from Fr Jean-Marie's Ordination

In the previous two posts you have seen photos from Fr Jean-Marie's Ordination and First Mass.  Some of the music has now been uploaded for your enjoyment.

The choir of the Latin Mass Chaplaincy here in Christchurch sang Missa O Quam Gloriosum by Tomás Luis de Victoria, which was composed in 1572.  They also sung Palestrins's Sicut Cervus during Holy Communion.





Agnus Dei

Fr Jean-Marie's First Solemn Mass

Fr Jean Marie, F.SS.R. celebrated his Fist Solemn Mass on Quasimodo Sunday, also called Low Sunday and Divine Mercy Sunday.  He celebrated Holy Mass at Our Mother of Perpetual Succour Oratory which is attached to our Monastery here in Christchurch, New Zealand, so it was the main Sunday Mass for the faithful of the Latin Mass chaplaincy here in Christchurch.

It was with great joy that we welcomed Dom Andrews, O.S.B. who came from Clear Creek Monastery in America to be with us for Fr Jean's ordination.  He was Subdeacon for Father's First Solemn Mass.

 Very Rev Fr Anthony Mary, F.SS.R. was Assistant Priest.

 The Vidi Aquam, which replaces the Asperges during Paschal Time.

After the Vidi Aquam, the Deacon and Sub-deacon assist Fr Jean-Marie to put on the chasuble.

 Holy Mass begins with the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar.

 Confiteor Deo Omnipotenti
I confess to Almighty God.

 Father Jean Marie places incense into the thurible...

 ...and incenses the Altar.

 Father is incensed by the Deacon.

 While the Gloria is chanted the ministers are seated.

 The Deacon receives the blessing to chant the Gospel.

 Father Jean Marie turns to face the Gospel whilst it is being chanted by the Deacon.

 Offering the chalice.

The Lavabo: Father washes his fingers in preparation for the consecration when he will hold God between them.

Father Jean-Marie consecrates the Sacred Host.

 My Lord and my God!

 Elevating the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Father gives the absolution after the Confiteor.

 Ecce Agnus Dei!
Behold the Lamb of God!

 Ecce qui tollit peccata mundi!
Behold HimWho taketh away the sins of the world!

 Father gives Holy Communion to his Mother.

 The Deacon chants the Ite Missa Est.

 The final blessing.

Father with his confreres and family.

With some of the young people who make up the Latin Mass chaplaincy.

Deo Gratias et Mariæ!
Thanks be to God and Mary!
