Corpus Christi Report

There was a good turnout last night for the Sung Mass at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament in Marton.  There were about 20 in the congregation, which I thought was good for such a remotely located church.  In addition, there were two servers, a chorister and a priest in choir, as well as the celebrant, Fr Mark Drew.

I was particularly pleased to see Fr Simon Leworthy, who had traveled from Bridlington to be in choir; and we are indebted to Mike Forbester who sang the propers of the feast.  At the end, he sang the York version of the Salve Regina, which is considerably longer and more complicated than anything I am used to.

It was actually the Salve Regina, sung regularly by the monks of St. Mary's Abbey in York until the Reformation.
