Video of Anglican Use Choral Mass in Toronto

People gather for Anglican Use Choral Mass in Toronto

Here are a couple of video clips from the Corpus Christi Choral Mass at Sacré-Coeur Church in downtown Toronto last Sunday.

The next scheduled Choral Eucharist is being planned for the Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady in August.

In the meantime, Sunday Sung Mass continues weekly at 1:45 pm with organ, cantor, hymns, chant and Mass in the language of the Book of Common Prayer according to the Book of Divine worship as approved by the CDF in Rome for use in Canada with permission of Cardinal Collins.

Here are links to the video clips with marvellous music for the Mass by Healey Willan and Duruflé:

Anglican Use Choral Eucharist for Corpus Christi

This Sunday for the Feast of Corpus Christi, the regular weekly Mass of the Toronto Anglican Use Sodality will once again be a Choral Eucharist (our weekly service is usually a Missa Cantata Sung Eucharist, with hymns and English plainsong). 
A professional choral ensemble has been assembled to lead the congregation in the music of the sacred liturgy, which will feature Healey Willan’s Missa Brevis I and Durufle’s Tantum Ergo, as well as the usual complement of Anglican hymns and English plainsong.

There will be free parking at the Green P parking lot just north of the church on the east side of Sherbourne St (it’s about four doors north of the church). This is a special arrangement for this Sunday only. Because this weekend is the anniversary of Sacré-Coeur parish, the parish parking lot is going to be in use for the afternoon, so the Green P lot has been reserved for our use this Sunday afternoon.

As usual, Mass is at 1:45pm at Sacré-Coeur (the Church of the Sacred Heart) at 381 Sherbourne St in downtown Toronto. There is a children’s program downstairs during the liturgy of the Liturgy of the Word, and afterwards we have been invited to join the Sacré-Coeur parishioners outside for their BBQ.

As always, our Masses fulfill the Sunday obligation for all Catholics, regardless of whether or not they are of an Anglican background. Everyone is welcome to attend.
