Fota III

The 3rd annual conference of the St Colman's Society for Catholic Liturgy commences in Cork on Saturday Morning, the 10th of July. This year's concentration is on Sacred Music and specifically the contribution, attitude and writings of the current Holy Father. Of particular interest to Jubal's Review will be an address given by James Macmillan  (Sunday at 1600). From the historical perspective Kerry McCarthy will deliver a paper on William Byrd (Monday at 0900). Dr McCarthy has done much to enhance understanding of the liturgical context that Byrd was writing in. The website for the St Colman Society contains the prospectus and other information for the conference. The Pontifical Mass on Sanday (nota bene 11 am, Ss Peter and Paul's Church) will include Palestrina's Missa Pape Marcelli and James Macmillan's motet Christus Vincit. The High Mass on Monday (12 30 pm, same venue) will use William Byrd's Mass for Five Voices.
