The Jubilee, a video

Sergey Budaev prepared this video of excerpts of the Jubilee Mass, the choir were our own schola and the Brighton Chamber Choir, directed by Jane Money, I heard them at their practice beforehand they were splendid, I didn't really hear them during Mass, too buy praying, so it is good to listen to them here.
It is also so good to see what the servers were doing, the excellent Dominic Scarbrough had less than an hour to show them what to do, most had never served in the Extraordinary form before.
I am very grateful to everyone who helped make this such a wonderful day, including my marvellous parishioners who organised the reception.
God is good to me!

Excellent video, good camera angles, good selection of shots, good editing and continuity. Conveys the atmosphere of the event very well.

Do we have a budding film-maker in our midst?
