Today is the 4th Sunday in Lent, called Laetare, after the first words of the introit of Holy Mass. During this penitential season, the solemnizing of marriages is prohibited, as are flowers on the altars and the use of the organ during Mass. But the last two prohibitions are lifted today, and Dr Radovondrahety has obviously welcomed the relaxation. And the violet of the season is replaced by rose, as on Gaudete Sunday in Advent.
The tract is specially lovely; at Saint-Eugène, however, the Schola used faux-bourdon, the text of the proper chant sung in harmony-- this makes the singing less of a challenge and also renders the text more easily comprehensible to its hearers.
Jesus ergo cum cognovísset, quia ventúri essent, ut ráperent eum et fácerent eum regem, fugit íterum in montem ipse solus.
