Re: Help identifying a psalm setting

Has anyone used this setting for this psalm, either during the Easter Vigil or at Pentecost? This year we used a setting by Stephen Dean which is nice, though I prefer the Dom Gregory Murray setting. Just wondering if you are familiar with the original version of the Dean (not the one in The Great ...

Not in that key but it's on p33 of the Dean/Macmillan Complete Responsorial Psalter.
Response and chant both AGM
For Macmillan, read McCrimmon !

Re: Hymns to St. Joseph

Welcome, Don!

Amazon does not provide a list of contents. I wonder if you have included James Quinn's hymn "Joseph, we praise you" (no. 99 in Hymns for All Seasons) — a fine text, permeated with scripture references and not overly sentimental.

Re: New Translation of the Lectionary incoming

Thanks, Alan, for posting this. It is not just Responsorial Psalms that are affected; presumably there will be new Gospel acclamations as well, which composers will also need to set. Given that the referenced document says … This is a new publication of the Lectionary using different scripture tran...

Re: Bishops' Vademecum for Holy Week 2021

While agreeing that the new provision is far from ideal, I fear the rubrical pundits would tell us that GIRM/Missal 2010 is more recent than Paschale Solemnitatis (January 1988) and therefore supersedes the latter. But even the Missal seems confused about some things. As John says, Missal rubric Goo...

Re: Bishops' Vademecum for Holy Week 2021

I also hear of parishes have also decided to forego Communion on Good Friday, partly for reasons of health safety but also because it helps to reduce the time that people need to be inside the building for a lengthy service. If you don't have Communion on Good Friday, you can't have the reservation...

Re: Bishops' Vademecum for Holy Week 2021

It will also need to be made very clear in advance that there is no 'creeping to the cross' on Good Friday this year. I am aware of some parishes where there will indeed be a procession (socially distanced) to the cross, but with each person bowing to the cross and not kissing it. This keeps some o...

Re: Just popping in.....

Hello, oops ! I do understand your anguish. I have been fortunate to be able, some of the time, to play the organ in a large, freezing (!) building where I am normally well away from others. But I have not received Communion for a year and have no wish to do so. It's simply not safe for me, or, I be...

Re: Women in 'Minor Orders'

I can recommend a book called 'The Hidden History of Women's Ordination' (forgotten the author and I can noi longer find it on my shelf) but it goes right back to the early church - who was doing what, why and when) and how it all got suppressed. Guess why? Professor Gary Macy, an excellent speaker...

Re: Virtual Choir Software - MixPad

I have now thoroughly road-tested MixPad. While it has some features that are more easily accessed, in general I prefer the interface of Audacity. which makes routine tasks such as aligning tracks much easier and much more precise. Of course, everyone will have different tastes. My decision was made...

Re: Just popping in.....

Great piece, great recording! Although it doesn't sound like it, the piano part requires virtuoso technique to perform as written (Antoine Oomen was a concert pianist), though you can adapt it somewhat. The modern Dutch school is massively underrated and underused. One for the present pandemic is Hu...
