Here is the tail end of the communion antiphon and  J. Faure’s O Salutaris Hostia during Mass at St Brigid’s, Toryglen yesterday. Experimenting with solo motets duiring covid restrictions on choirs. Excuse the couple of blips- I put the tv monitor in a different place and a glance turned into a search!

Posting the odd mistake is good for efforts to get over one’s self. I’ll get there one day.
