A Different Kind of World Youth Day

David Hughes of St. Mary's Norwalk provides the report:

The main English speaking Masses, on Wednesday the 17th and Thursday the 18th, will be sung by the St. Mary's Student Schola of Norwalk, CT; the Sisters of Life Schola; and others. When accepting the invitation to come to Madrid, I made our participation contingent on singing the propers; therefore the proper Introit, Offertory, and Communio will be sung each day. Responsorial psalms are to a Gregorian tone, with Theodore Marier's fauxbourdon for the verses. Alleluias are (in a pastoral concession) to the mode vi triple Alleluia (which is of course proper only to the Easter Vigil); but the Alleluia verse each day will be chanted melismatically. Motets are by Josquin, Palestrina, Victoria, Byrd, and Mozart.
