Francis Patrick O'Brien

Person Name: Francis Patrick O’Brien Author of "Children's Dismissal for Liturgy of the Word" in Gather Comprehensive, Second Edition Francis Patrick O'Brien Ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston in 1985, Fran has spent all of his priesthood in parish and campus ministry, where, along with his sacramental and parochial duties, he has frequently served as music director and composer. He is currently pastor of St. Matthias Parish in Marlborough, MA, a western suburb of Boston. Fran began working in music ministry at age thirteen as accompanist for the children’s choir in his home parish. He moved up the ranks from fill-in organist to music director while still in high school. During those years, Fran began composing for liturgy, taking inspiration from the works of Alexander Peloquin, Lucien Deiss, Michael Joncas and the St. Louis Jesuits. Fran later studied under Martin Pearlman, founder of Boston Baroque; John Huggler, composer in residence, Boston Symphony Orchestra; and noted choral composer, Julian Wachner. Fran’s compositions for worship are born out of over 35 years of experience as accompanist, choir director and, since 1985, presider. His compositions, beginning with You Are All We Have and Shepherd of My Heart, in 1991, are known for their strong melodies and solid texts. He is a frequent presenter of workshops and concerts throughout the New England area as well as with NPM and GIA. His commissions include works for Form Reform, the NCEA and the Archdiocese of Boston in celebration of its bicentennial year.

Gregory Murray

1905 - 1992 Person Name: A. Gregory Murray, OSB Composer (Verses) of "[My God, come quickly to help me]" in Worship (4th ed.) Dom Gregory Murray OSB, organist and composer, died at Downside Abbey on January 19th 1992 aged 86. he was born in Fulham, London on February 27, 1905 DOM Gregory Murray enhanced the music of the Roman Catholic Church, and latterly that of other denominations, almost by stealth. His music is sung every Sunday in thousands of churches throughout the English-speaking world: a case of everybody knowing the tune but few knowing the name of the composer. His influence through such simple music as A People's Mass (with sales of over two million copies), his psalm tones, organ music and hymn tunes reached far, although he had more or less withdrawn from public life half a century ago. Anthony Gregory Murray was educated at Westminster Cathedral Choir School when Sir Richard Terry was Master of the Music, and St Benedict's, Ealing. He was ordained in 1932 for Downside Abbey and spent most of the rest of his life there except for periods at Ealing during the war and as parish priest of Hindley, Lancashire, from 1948 to 1952. He was parish priest of St Benedict's, Stratton-on-the-Fosse, from 1952 to 1987, a position he combined with his domestic duties. In 1923 he became a fellow of the Royal College of Organists and read for the historical tripos at Cambridge, graduating in 1929. Murray was a brilliant organist, regular broadcasts from the Compton organ at Downside led to the folk tale among musicians that the abbey was permanently hooked up to the BBC. He was particularly noted for his skill at improvising. Those with acute hearing and their wits about them would frequently detect a musical quotation from another work, not necessarily sacred in nature. He was an authority on Gregorian Chant, publishing two books on the subject. It was a measure of his honesty that, once he had changed his mind about the rhythmic basis of plainsong, the second more or less contradicted the first. He disowned his Gregorian Rhythm: a Pilgrim's Progress (1934) in the October 1957 edition of The Score, later giving his reasons in Gregorian Chant According to the Manuscripts (1963). Two of his hymn tunes were published in the widely esteemed Hymns Ancient & Modern (New Standard). Outside of music his interests encompassed the gospel of St Matthew, football, cricket, tennis and chess. He complained during his last illness that the greatest privation of being sick was his inability to play the latter four, especially football. The sharp wit of his early years had mellowed to a delightful humour which he retained to the end. His over-riding interest as a musician was to provide music that would enhance the Roman Catholic liturgy. (when the Church of England later took to his music with enthusiasm he was delighted). His reflections on the place of music as a servant of the liturgy are recorded in Music and the Mass (1977). He wrote for the old Latin liturgy, but as a keen vemacularist he seized the opportunities offered by the reforms of the Second Vatican Council and continued composing until a few months before his death. He was always threatening to stop writing, once describing music to his publisher as "a bore and a chore", but he never did and his Chorale Prelude on Marienlied was published on the day his death was announced. His four books of Short Organ Interludes for Liturgical use are a blessing for parish organists.
