Collect: Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, purifying us by the sacred practice of penance, you may lead us in sincerity of heart to attain the holy things to come.
So last Friday was the beginning of a busy weekend for me, which is why this post was late. Class was plain, and work was work, but the highlight of the evening was taking some friends to the senior organ recital of the music director of St. John’s in Allentown, my go to church for the Extraordinary Form.
It was actually my first live exposure of the organ outside of Bach and church music, and it was quite an experience. They really weren’t kidding when they say the organ is considered the King of all Instruments. After the recital, my friends and I got to talk to a priest about the various forms and implementations of the Liturgy; it was quite fun. All in all, it was a night of good music and good people.
