  •  I have been lucky to find Anglo Catholic parishes (3+ / 0-)

    which were doctrinally flexible, radically welcoming, and liturgically higher than a kite. Just my sort of thing. Especially since I am a specialist in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance Polyphony, both Continental and English, and am a career sacred musician. They can be found.

    Our Episcopal Cathedral here in Portland, ME (St. Luke's) is great because while broad with a high church bent the Diocese itself is rather high church. I would say 60 percent of the parishioners are Anglo-Catholics, the rest mostly broad with a few evangelicals (low church) interspersed. Having visited our RC Cathedral here, I can say that we certainly have them 10 to 1 when it comes to liturgy and music. We can put on one heck of a procession, I'll tell you that, and our thurifers know what they are doing when it comes to fancy stuff in processions, we have Stations of the Cross twice a week during Lent and it is made clear that the Sacrament of Reconciliation is available at any time and the Blessed Sacrament is reserved on the Altar (something that not all, but many, Episcopal churches do).

    I can live with that.
