Media vita in morte sumus In the midst of life we are in death
Quem quaerimus ad iutorem nihi site domine What helper do we seek except you, oh Lord
Qui pro peccatis nostris You who for our sins
Sancte Deus, sancte fortis Holy God, holy and powerful
Sancte misericor salvator Oh holy compassionate savior
Amare mortis ne tradas nos Do not give us over to the harshness of death
In te speraverunt patres nostri In you our fathers placed their hopes
Speraverunt et liberasti eos They placed their hopes and you freed them

Latin Mass...before the Cannon of the Mass
Something like this theme song is what Alexander would like for our eBook when it is completed and becomes a movie ℗ 2010 Walt Disney Records. His vocabulary is very advanced, and today I finally succeeded in getting him to pronounce protocol correctly. It sounded like prodigal, which is very different. Our theory is that if you shoot for the stars, you might land on one.
Only in classical Russian ballet do you get magnetic costuming, here Egyptian. Modern American movies could learn something from Russian ballet when dressing women.
I found ballet through music, then St. Petersburg's Vaganova Ballet School, a comprehensive school for boys and girls ages 10-18, where they get all their academics plus training, and learn to address their teachers respectfully. I've seen it. When ballet arrived in Russia from France, the Russians soared, making ballet the second most popular pursuit after soccer. Enlarge screen for full effect.
Kokoreva is technically ravishing; Stepanova has the soft and light Vaganova touch; and research on the name Krys reveals that it is a variant of Chris in English and Greek and Christian in English, French, and German, and means carrier of Christ. Voila!
Armed with your torches and your serpents,
from your dark foul realm,
ye companions of cruel frenzy,
O Furies, come to us.
With your whips, with death and slaughter,
lead us and teach
our enraged breasts
to avenge the death of so great a general.
Armatae face et anguibus
a caeco regno squallido
furoris sociae barbari,
furiae, venite ad nos.
Morte, flagello, stragibus
vindictam tanti funeris
irata nostra pectora
duces docete vos.
Fr. Vivaldi is pleased with his students, and if you tell me poetry doesn't matter, I'm going to send this woman after you.

Not Vatican and not one royal family know how to govern like kings. The whole lot of them are spoiled leadership fails and completely irrelevant, unable to inspire loyalty because they have none.
When you are in trouble, you close ranks and cut off those who are hurting the family. There is no other choice. There is no common man. He wants to be caught up in a glorious cause. That’s the whole point of school.
Cut the pope out for treason!

To sing what you believe is the way to success, so it was for Louis IX. Follow the path, Greek to Latin to French to English (CC for English). English speakers use the Douay-Rheims.
The Oxyrhynchus hymn (or P. Oxy. XV 1786) is the earliest known manuscript of a Catholic hymn in Ancient Greek to contain both lyrics and musical notation.
From the Latin oxyrhynchus, from the Ancient Greek ὀξῠ́ρρῠγχος, the Latinized version oxúrrhunkhos, the word is a kind of Egyptian fish.
The fish is a Catholic symbol and is based on the first letters of the Greek words for Jesus Christ. The Greek word for fish is Ichthus, which is also an acronym for Jesus. The Greek, Iesous CHristos THeou Uios Soter, translates in English to, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.
To a trained ear, the sound resembles Gregorian Chant because it is somewhat lyrical, and was, perhaps, a precursor.

“Even after his voice changed at age 13, Scholl continued to sing as a countertenor…In an interview with iclassics.com, Scholl said, ‘Singing is just very natural; I’ve always done it, every day, and I’ve always enjoyed it.’” -Encyclopedia.com
Some tenors can reach this register with practice, but it remains fairly hard to do.
I’ve heard Andreas sing at a lower register, he says baritone, but it sounds tenor.
With homemade sacramentals and store-bought items, boys of the FSSP learn by imitating. No wine. I had my first sip of wine around 12 or 13...no, no...at the dining room table!
Father J. Fryer, FSSP, serves at Capilla de la Inmaculada Concepción (Chapel of the Immaculate Conception), Cuauhtémoc, Mexico, historic center of Mexico, Centro, Mexico City. Two priests living in the apartment above the sacristy need help because most parishioners are low-income. https://missiontradition.us/fssp-mexico-an-appeal-from-father-fryar/ Religious from a Novus ordo monastery produced the recorded psalm.
In 1703, Vivaldi was hired by the Ospedale della Pietà, an orphanage for girls in Venice, a position he was to hold for the next 36 years. Initially hired as a violin teacher, he was given more and more responsibility.
The girls often stayed at the orphanage for the rest of their lives. They were divided into two groups, those who received a musical education and those who received a general education.
At Mass, they performed behind screens (grill work) so as not to distract the congregation, which explains why, traditionally, musicians and choir singers were in a loft at the back of church. This is the correct way to do it. The modernist church puts choirs in front, sometimes right in the sanctuary, if there is one. The right focus is the altar.
Though they would have worn the white veils to cover head and shoulders (to require that would make a television production less appealing), here is an authentic re-creation of how it was done.
There are biblical reasons for a veil. I think it makes a woman more beautiful.
The red lamp is the sanctuary lamp, lit when Our Lord is present in the tabernacle.
During research I read something else about Vivaldi. I don’t know if this is true, but it has been written that he left the altar while saying Mass to write a musical thought and returned after several minutes, and did this more than once. If true, this would explain his request for dispensation as a priest.
There are other explanations, including severe asthma attacks at the altar.
Farya Faraji is the creator. He has the assistance of Luke Ranieri. Luke’s YT channel is called polýMATHY. According to Farya, the instruments used are the Greco-Roman lyre, aulos, pan flute, bagpipe, frame drum, and tambourine, all of the period.
I subscribe to his channel and Ranieri’s. Theirs is classical pronunciation.
Catamite has either of two meanings, neither praiseworthy.
Sung at St. Willibrord. Willibrord, Bishop of Utrecht, died in 739. Mozart died in 1791. Both were fluent in Latin.
Laudate Dominum omnes gentes
Laudate eum, omnes populi
Quoniam confirmata est
Super nos misericordia eius
Et veritas, veritas Domini manet, manet in aeternum
Gloria Patri et Filio
Et Spiritui Sancto
Sicut erat in principio
Et nunc, et semper
Et in saecula saeculorum
Amen, Amen, Amen
Praise the Lord, all ye nations,
praise him, all ye peoples.
For his loving mercy
has been bestowed upon us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for eternity.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
After Vatican II, Utrecht wanted to sell and demolish the Gothic revival church built in the years 1875-1877. Lay people and Father Winand Kotte (Assumptionists) bought the building and kept the interior intact.
The SSPX offers the Latin Mass every Sunday at 5 pm, in a country where Catholicism is practically dead. Between 2008 and 2011 the number of parishes went from 326 to 48. Attendance at Sunday Mass was 13% in 2021 and, following COVID, is now 2.5%.
And still the cardinal there thinks the drop has nothing to do with Vatican II. In the real world, he would get the boot.

I’m going to stick to a little etiquette rule and make it one for yourself. When someone says, “Thank you,” always respond, “You’re welcome,” and, men, get off your fanny when a lady enters the room.
About 2 1/2 hours from Prague is the Cistercian monastery at Vyšší Brod, and the best place for school. The ideal plan would be reordering every diocese and its schools, and independent Catholic schools, around a monastery as the center.
Did you know of two inventions, the interim Mass (1967) followed by the new Mass (1969)?
Oremus: let us reverse and renew our direction.

If God is calling you to monastic life, say, "Yes," even if you can't sing. I'm told you learn.
“The story is from the Book of Judith in the Apocrypha, in which Judith, a Jewish widow, saves her people from the army of Nebuchadnezzar. With her city besieged by the enemy, Judith and her maid Abra secretly make their way to the camp of the general Holofernes to sue for peace.
“Holofernes falls in love with her, and, after giving a feast in her honor, he falls into a drunken sleep. Judith seizes the opportunity and beheads him with his own sword. His servant Vagaus discovers the body and raises an alarm, but Judith and Abra have escaped.
“The Jews then attack and drive away the leaderless and demoralized Assyrians.”
Vivaldi received a commission to celebrate the victory of the Republic of Venice over the Turks at the siege of Corfu in July 1716. The Turks had landed on Corfu and had set siege to the island. His composition is an allegorical description of the victory of the Venetians over the Turks.
In 1546 the Council of Trent canonized the Apocrypha, which includes the Book of Judith, making its acceptance mandatory. "The Book of Judith does not exist in the Hebrew Bible, and is consequently excluded from the Protestant Canon of Holy Scripture. But the Church has always maintained its canonicity." https://www.catholic.com/encyclopedia/book-of-judith

Vivaldi wrote over 500 instrumental concertos and sacred choral works. He also composed 40 operas, not for the school where he taught violin (Ospedale della Pietà), but for public performance in Venice. That is exceptional, given his poor health. The single complaint he made about that was in a letter, saying that he had a tightening of the throat. He and Chopin, who suffered from poor health, too, were geniuses, and if anyone hears me complain ever again, smack me.
Vivaldi and Chopin had different dispositions: Chopin kept his Catholicism private. See Piano under the More Tab for more about what he said to his closest friends, and the girlfriend he never married.
Caravaggio, c. 1598–1599 or 1602
Juditha triumphans devicta Holofernis barbarie. Judith is triumphant over the barbarians of Holofernes. The story is about a woman slaying a man, which is juicy.
Fire-engine-haired Vivaldi wrote the Oratorio in 1716. Antonio was a Catholic priest, but at his own request, he was dispensed from his priestly faculties. “An angina pectoris from which he had suffered since birth must have sometimes manifested itself so violently that several times he had to leave the altar in the middle of Mass.” https://www.antoniovivaldi.net/2022/06/antonio-vivaldi-biography.html
What an exciting adventure his music is.
I am riding a horse, being chased, escaping, slowing to let the horse eat some grass, and chased again. We jump over a creek, and I fall off, onto a sandy bend, and there, hands begin twisting the noose tight, tighter, tighter. Which one of the ladies is going to kill me? “Vivat in pace,” I yell!
Vivaldi taught violin to girls. If you saw their faces day in and day out and heard their mistakes, would you not have had the urge to strangle an occasional girl or two there in the classroom? I thought so.
They are singing in Latin. Haha. You thought it was a dead language. You will hear the Latin word video. It means I see.
When the first violin plays for the lady in army green at about 34 minutes, she turns to him, and that is the moment she becomes beautiful.
Monday, July 24, 2023, Northern Spain, one hour from Oviedo, Latin Mass, conclusion of pilgrimage. Restoration begins. This is the way to pack a church (1,200). Do it with or without approval and in a field if necessary. Do you have so many men in your church?
