Jacob Obrecht: Missa Sub tuum praesidium

As we conclude our perusal of the sacred repertoire of Jacob Obrecht, we come to his Missa Sub tuum praesidium, which he wrote to honor the Most Blessed Virgin as Mediatrix of All Grace.

In this Mass, Obrecht has the soprano do the chant and the supporting voices, which following the Kyrie, increase in number for each part of the Mass, like Angels flocking to the Divine Worship.

At 5 P.M., FromRome.Info brings you a selection of sacred music from Catholic composers throughout the ages, for your edification and to help us all realize how profoundly inimical the Aggiornamento has been to Catholic worship.

 

Benediction

It is a wonderful grace, to be able to be blessed by Jesus Christ in Person. This is what happens during the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament in the Catholic Church. FromRome.Info recorded the Benediction which was done yesterday, by Don Enrico Maria Roncaglia, O.S.B., a priest who celebrates all the Sacraments in communion with Pope Benedict.

For those of you who would like to make a spiritual communion while watching this Video, here is a text, recommended by Br. Bugnolo:

A Spiritual communion

O Immaculate Queen of Heaven and Earth, Mother of God and Mediatrix of every grace: I believe that Thy dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is truly, really, and substantially contained in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love Him above all things and I long to receive Him into my heart. Since I cannot now receive Him sacramentally, be so good as to place Him spiritually in my soul.

O my Jesus, I embrace Thee as One who has already come, and I unite myself entirely to Thee. Never permit me to be separated from Thee. Amen.

 

Quinquagesima Sunday: Mass una cum Papa Benedicto

The goal of all Catholics is to attend Mass on Sunday, offered in communion with the true Pope. FromRome.Info for that reason recorded the entire Mass of Don Enrico Maria Roncaglia, O.S.B., offered on Sunday, February 23, 2020, in the Ancient Roman Rite, so that Catholics who are in communion with Pope Benedict XVI can have the grace at least virtually of attending the Holy Sacrifice said as all priests should be saying it, in communion with the true and only pope.

The readings are read in Latin and Italian, and Father Preaches in Italian.

The Mass was offered in the Sala Glauca, at the Hotel Pineta Palace, Rome, Italy, yesterday.

Jacob Obrecht: Missa Maria Zart, Kyrie

Today, as we peruse the sacred repertoire of Obrecht, we feature the Tallis Scholar’s performance of the Kyrie from Jacob’s Missa Maria Zart.

An interesting fact about the invention of sacred polyphony in the 14th and 15th centuries, is that the centers of its production were in the rich mercantile cities of Flanders and neighboring towns and among the courts of the nobility in Northern Italy. The common desire to glorify God as part and parcel of the manifestation of the magnificent of their towns or families went hand in had. Decried by others in more barbarous times and nations, this is a true Catholic approach to God, family, city art and music, making an ally of all in the service of the Divine Majesty. — Another reason why those who hate God on principle, likewise hate Catholic culture.

Jacob Obrecht: Missa Caput, Agnus Dei

Today, as we peruse the sacred repertoire of Obrecht, we feature the Orchard Enterprises performance of the Angus Dei from Jacob’s Missa Caput.

Jacob Obrecht (Hobrecht) was born in 1457, just four years after the fall of Constantinople to the Turks. His father was a trumpet player and it is presumed that he followed him in that profession. He was so poor that often he had to sell his copies of choir books to pay for his expenses. He became a priest and learned from choir masters the art of composition. It is for this reason that his compositions use the human voice much like a sonorous trumpet. He died of the Bubonic Plague while at Ferrara, in Italy, in 1505.

Today, as we peruse the sacred repertoire of Obrecht, we feature the Tallis Scholars performance of his Missa de Santo Donatiano from Saint James’ Church, in Bruges, Belgium performed on May 10, 2018.

This is the kind of music which glorified the Catholic Religion in the generation immediately prior to the so called “Reformation”, which resulted in the second most violent and irrational attack on sacred art in Europe in its 3000 year history, next to the horrors committed by the Turks in the Balkans.

Jacob Obrecht: Beata es, Maria

Today’s piece is entitled, Beata es, Maria — Blessed art thou, Mary. It is a beautiful meditative rendition of the Archangel’s Salutation to the Virgin.

Obrecht was born at in Flanders, at Ghent in 1457 and died at Ferrara, Italy, in 1505, in the month of July. He was the most famous composers of music for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in his generation, being eclipsed solely by Josquin des Pres in his last years.
