Missa O Magnum Mysterium: Sound files


All hail the Choirparts YouTube channel for providing this most excellent resource, namely the Missa O Magnum Mysterium with individual parts emphasized. I'm going to include the Sanctus and Benedictus as well; we may or may not sing them during the Christmas season, so stay tuned.

Missa O Magnum Mysterium (Victoria):

Make sure you bring your MOMM to this rehearsal (11/7) and all further rehearsals through the Christmas season. You don't have to bring your Mom to rehearsal...unless she can sing.

Here We Go Again


(Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows was "JanuBURIED" in this media photo from January 2017.)

It remains to be seen whether Winter 2017-18 will be anything in northern Nevada like Winter 2016-17, especially given the warm and dry October we just had. In any event, a strong winter storm is forecast for this weekend with snow possibly coming down to valley level. If necessary, use your best judgment about coming or not on Sunday the 5th to 5 PM Mass, but IF YOU ARE NOT COMING, LET KATHY KNOW BY PHONE OR EMAIL; she does NOT like surprises. Maybe this will be much ado about nothing, but we will see.

Offertory: Benedic anima mea, All Hail The Power Of Jesus' Name

We heps yu singz better hoomin muzik. Kthxbai.

Need help with your non-chant musical notation? Look no further than our fine furry friends, happy to help you out when they're not otherwise all over the interwebs:

Musical Notation, As Described By Cats

(Source: Trumpet Angst on Tumblr. Hat Tip: former RPCer Sarah Beasley.)

Oh, the title is written is my best LOLspeak, the invented language of LOLcats, er, "kittehs." Believe it or not, there is an effort to translate the entire Bible into LOLspeak. I'll only post as much as I think will not cause lightning to strike me:
Genesis 1: Boreded Ceiling Cat makinkgz Urf n stuffs
1 Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat [1] maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem.
2 Da Urfs no had shapez An haded dark face, An Ceiling Cat rode invisible bike over teh waterz.
*Paul heads to confession

If you need help with "LOL," you might as well pack up your computer and return it now, er, nao, k?

[1] Usually a white cat, as opposed to "Basement Cat," usually a black cat.
