“Fiddle Mass” at St. Anthony’s Church

Oct 4, 2016 | Events

Fred Leroux is having a “Fiddle Mass” at St. Anthony’s Church in Apple Hill on Sunday, Oct. 23. The music will begin at 10:00 and the mass at 10:30. All fiddlers are encouraged to come and join in the service. If you attended last year, the tunes will be the same. The parish have a breakfast on that Sunday and it begins at 9 am and usually ends at noon. The cost is a freewill offering and all donations go to benefit the parish; all musicians will be given a ticket for the breakfast.

If anyone needs music, he or she can get it by writing to lochieler@yahoo.ca and we will send it. Most of the pieces are standards and many are on the CD. The list is as follows:

Before Mass: (subject to some change, but all familiar tunes)

  1. Hundred Thousand Welcomes
  2. Mairi’s Wedding, Hundred Pipers
  3. Kelsey McDonell’s Jig & the Barren Rocks of Aden
  4. Road to the Isles, Donald McLean’s Farewell to Oban, Sir Reginald MacDonald
  5. El Alamein, Off She Goes, Father O’ Flynn
  6. Maple Sugar
  7. Wild Rose of the Mountain, Fanny Power, Loch Garry Breezes
  8. Bonnie Dundee, The Mucking o’ Geordie’s Byre
  9. In Memory of Anne McNaughtan
  10. The Headlands

The processional will be “How Great Thou Art” and the recessional, “May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You.”  At Communion, tentatively planned are “Amazing Grace” and “In Memory of Anne McNaughtan”; it is likely that Glengarry My Home will be played at some point.

Musicians are encouraged to come downstairs to play some tunes after Mass.
