Winter Chant Intensive- Day 4

Today was packed with more practice for tomorrow's OF Mass.  I have been assigned 2nd cantor (no pressure - ack!), so I will be intoning the Alleluia.  Another alto and I will chant the verse and the Gloria Patri of the Introit together (whew!).  The Ordinary will be Mass IV.  We reviewed the Alma Redemptoris Mater this afternoon; it will be the recessional.  The men's section has the Offertory, and the women's has the Communion antiphon, alternating with the men chanting the verses.

A reporter from Georgia Public Radio arrived and interviewed several attendees, and also recorded the women's section while we were practicing in the church this morning.

After lunch, we learned how to point psalms using the Office tones, and practiced marking and analyzing the chant sheets for chironomy.   :)
