I have decided to discontinue my liturgical recordings and I encourage those who would like to attend online or recorded Sarum masses to go to Fr Andrew Scurr’s page on Facebook (ask for his “friendship” if necessary). I will continue to post other outdoor and office-based (computer and webcam) videos.
A part of the reason for this decision is the poor quality of my videos due to using a mobile phone (“bumping” image and mediocre sound quality). Experiments with my computer and webcam were even less conclusive. The only other option is an expensive camcorder, which might be possible in the future.
I also need to learn more about video editing using the appropriate software and various techniques like dubbing and fading. It is a new world for me.
Fr Scurr is doing a sterling service with his daily online and recorded Sarum Masses in Latin (or the English Missal). I recommend him for those still under strict lockdown or those who are vulnerable for reasons of health and age.
