Missa Cantata at St Joseph's, Gateshead

We had our twice monthly (1st & 3rd Sundays) Missa Cantata yesterday & it has to be said that the music was quite appalling. The Processional & Recessional were tuneless & uninspiring, not what one expects on Easter Sunday. We hope & pray that very soon we will have a choir to sing our Propers & Ordinaries in a form suitable to a parish church. The Propers were sung (badly) from the Liber Usualis which is suitable to monastic Masses but are too long & boring for parish Masses.
