For liturgy nerds on St. George's Day
« on: April 23, 2018, 02:24:16 PM »
It's appropriate today to share this photo from the church of Saint George, Sudbury (London). The first pastor, Father Clement Russell, was a former Anglican priest who strove to providing continuity in worship through ample use of Sarum-isms. Note the two cantors singing the Gradual from the desk in apparelled albs, the full English surplices, the men/boys choir in the sanctuary, the way the high altar is furnished with riddel posts, and so on, and so forth. It's a nuptial Mass, so bride and groom are in the sanctuary as well.

Father Russell basically had a small army of altar servers and choristers of all ages. Ironically, he had no interest in establishing a Catholic school, so this was all despite not having a school.

Thank you, HK! It's good to know that Sarumisms also have existed. Have there been any more Catholic Sarum Masses celebrated since the one in 1999 for Candlemas that you know of? Or any more recent Sarumisms?

The most recent "in communion with Rome" Sarum Mass I know of was celebrated by the Bishop of Aberdeen in 2000. It was at the chapel of King's College at the University of Aberdeen, to celebrate its 500th anniversary.

For "Sarumisms" within a Roman Rite TLM, you can find them here and there....
