I have found some software that enables me to make videos on my laptop computer using the built-in webcam and microphone. Therefore the quality isn’t very good. I will need to plug in an external microphone and a good quality webcam (which are quite inexpensive these days).
I recorded the Mass of today, Thursday in the week after Invocabit (between Ember Wednesday and Ember Friday). I was a little too conscious that I was being recorded, and forgot the Flectamus genua and Levate before the Collect. I did not say any commemorations. It is just about what I do each day, without a server.
On the YouTube page, I wrote the following introduction:
Low Mass according to the Use of Sarum on Thursday after “Invocabit” (first Sunday of Lent) in the Chapel of St Mary, Hautot Saint Sulpice, Normandy. This ministry is under the oversight of the Diocese of the United Kingdom of the Anglican Catholic Church – Original Province.
The sound quality is poor. I begin with the versicle and response preceding the Collect for Purity, and I only enter the chapel as I reach the end of the Judica me psalm. I recess whilst saying the Prologue of St John.
Purists might be disappointed at my not wearing an apparelled amice and alb. I just haven’t got round to making them, or an off-white gothic chasuble. For the time being, I wear the vestments I had when I used the Roman rite. The other slight difference is not laying the chalice on its side after the ablutions, because I use a purificator as in the Roman rite. Also, I didn’t forget the genuflections, because they are not in use in the Sarum Use. We use profound bows.
I hope to make some better recordings when I have bought the equipment to go with my computer, and preferably a video camera that I could also take on my boat!
