More Excellent Music from the Fota Liturgical Conference

Dr Ite O’Donovan, the director of the Dublin-based Lassus Scholars, has posted some more videos of the music for the Pontifical High Mass celebrated by Cardinal Raymond Burke for the ninth annual Fota Liturgical Conference in Cork, Ireland, at the church of Ss Peter and Paul. I was present for the conference and this Mass, and I just cannot praise the quality of the music highly enough. Particularly noteworthy was the use of Heinrich Isaac’s polyphonic settings for the propers of the 8th Sunday after Pentecost, from his famous Choralis Constantinus. (Click here for more from Fota IX, or visit Dr O’Donovan’s Youtube channel.)

Introit  Suscépimus, Deus, misericordiam tuam in medio templi tui: secundum nomen tuum, Deus, ita et laus tua in fines terrae: justitia plena est déxtera tua. Ps 47 Magnus Dóminus, et laudábilis nimis: in civitáte Dei nostri, in monte sancto ejus. Gloria Patri. Sicut erat. Suscépimus.
