In the dioceses of England and Wales the Entrance Chant may be chosen from among the following: the antiphon with its Psalm from the Graduale Romanum or the Graduale Simplex, or another chant that is suited to the sacred action, the day, or the time of year, and whose text has been approved by the Conference of Bishops of England and Wales.
Why am I so unlucky? Whenever the church lays down something whith which I'd be rather inclined to disagree it's "conform, or else . . " but when it's something that I rather like we can take it or leave it (or keep retranslating it till it means what we would like it to have meant! - where is that new trasnslation, SC - it's not the one in the Missal itself.)Everyone, it seems, from the top downwards (vide "Celebrating the Mass"") avows acceptance of the restored form of the celebration of the liturgy whilst all too often murmuring "Oh you don't need to bother about that" when it comes to practice.

Who can say, SC? - I confess that i am referring to the Missal as recently downloaded from the internet, but I cannot remember exactly from where. I won't try to attach it here as a) I don't know how, and b) it's about 1500 pages long, but the file name on my computer as downloaded isSouthern Comfort wrote:Unless, of course, there are different versions of the Missal out there....
Generally I thought it best to avoid revised settings initially, but we have an occasional music group who were comfortable with Mass of Creation and could easily accompany it.
I'd still like to find another completely new, memorable and uplifting setting of the acclamations which has no 'cheese' factor, and another through-composed Gloria. There are some good ones out there but wanted to see what is becoming common currency. It's very interesting to see what others are settling on.

I certainly wouldn't. If you were still there in a couple of years, maybe, but singing the texts is what matters. And if your assembly is anything like ours they'll soon let you know when they're fed up!Peter wrote:Nick would doubtless be horrified at such lack of variety...
