MacMillan to write new OF Mass for Pope’s visit to England

“This will be the first ever setting of the new English Mass,” Mr MacMillan told the SCO as he began working on the project. “We have stolen a march on the US.”

With all due respect, James, I beat you by 4 months. So, I suspect, did a lot of other people who entered this competition. Granted, you will beat us to actually using the text in a mass, due to the mewling of American bishops. But the composers have been there…even if most of us aren’t James MacMillan.
