I’m afraid the recordings are terrible. I recorded most of the 3rd Sunday in Easter Mass but sadly only on my mobile phone which just could not cope with the width of the acoustic at St James’. Anyway, here’s the first Alleluia with the ladies of our schola cantoring the verse. When we had a repetition of phrases Dom Yves-Marie encouraged us to vary the dynamics. He said the choice of dynamic was a matter of preference so we opted to sing the first phrase forte and the second piano. Despite the terrible recordings I was struck by how incredbly beautiful these Easter Season chants are particularly when sung by a large schola. Breathe at the quarter bar lines and the magic is lost. The sound has to be continuous.
Here is the second Alleluia with the men of the Schola singing the verse. Again, the distortion will make your ears bleed.
