Fr Reece Beltrame, a local Albury resident, was ordained a priest at St Michael’s Cathedral in Wagga Wagga on April 2, 2016. St Patrick’s Albury hosted his first Mass (Mass of Thanksgiving) the following day for Divine Mercy Sunday. The St Patrick’s Schola and myself, as organist, were honoured to be asked to provide the liturgical music at this special ceremony.
The service music was as follows:
- Processional Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
- Mass Setting: Kyrie XI, Gloria (Orbis Factor)
- Offertory Hymn: O Sons and Daughters
- Offertory Motet: Regina Caeli – Aichinger
- Communion Hymn: Firmly I Believe and Truly
- Communion Motet: O Sacrum Convivium – Remondi
- Recessional Hymn: Immaculate Mary
Below is a video of the processional hymn “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” sung enthusiastically by the Schola and the congregation.
