Re: Boosey and Hawkes

I understand that the archbishop of Westminster has mandated this setting for his archdiocese.

Re: Liturgical Tourism

The obvious answer is Epiphany, Ascension or Corpus Christi in Slovenia, Italy or other countries where the feasts are not transferred! I understand that the Italian Bishops' conference has also decided to transfer feasts. The diocese of Rome celebrated Corpus Christi on Sunday 10th June. (the Vati...

Re: Hymn for the Olympics

I understood that the thread concerned a particular hymn rather than the merits or otherwise of the Games as a whole.

To return to the hymn: I fear Wesley has little competition from this quarter.

Many clergy and laity have said exactly this regarding the translation of the Missale Romanum. It is not an argument which has been received sympathetically.

Re: Rights and Webcams

I'd hate to have every note scrutinised via the web. Or every piece of church furniture (v.s.) While we all know the rules about broadcasting copyright material I recall that there was a thread on this forum some while past on that very subject. I don't believe that contributors came to a definitiv...

Re: Easter Alleluia

... It is a tragedy that those who ought to know better continue to clutch at anything with which to beat those who have failed to heed their lost cause, even straw. The move from G to A at that point no more militates against a feminine ending than the opening of the ICEL Sanctus requires us to pl...

Re: Easter Alleluia

In exploring the texts and chants for the Easter Dismissal with its alleluia this evening, eyebrows were raised at the chant given by the Commission for the first option, "Go forth, the Mass is ended, alleluia, alleluia." There is no quarrel to be had with the text, but the tone moves from...

Re: Hail Mary in Prayer of the Faithful

Why do people want to deny most Catholics, who only attend Sunday Mass. the opportunity to recite the Hail Mary once a week? It is apparent from reading the history in the linked thread that the 'people' who ' want to deny most Catholics...' are the legislators of Mother Church in Rome. One should ...

Re: Preparing for Lent and Easter 2012

One must presume that Northern Tenor is referring to a para-liturgical celebration taking place on Easter Sunday. Both the Institutio Generalis and the Cæremoniale Episcoporum presume that the liturgical processional cross is one upon which there is a corpus.

Re: Litany Of The Saints at Easter Vigil

It is abundantly obvious however that any interpretation of the rubric which deviates from the mind of the Church (equivalent to the will of God) is damned to the eternal punishment of Hell.

Re: Why aren't the Missal & Gradual texts identical?

SC's bases his discussion on the assumption that the mind of the Fathers is synonymous with the text of the document. This may or may not be the case. GIRM does have the antiphon from the graduale as the first option. Whether or not the first item in a list is to be considered preferred whether the ...

Re: BBC1 Midnight Mass from Southwark RC Cathedral

But a setting of the Sanctus (no matter how well crafted it may be) that excludes the assembly is certainly a breach of liturgical law, as well as eschewing the ritual hospitality that HallamPhil is asking for. Oh dear - given that cathedrals are to give good example of liturgical practice to the d...

Re: BBC1 Midnight Mass from Southwark RC Cathedral

"especially by adapting your Christmas liturgies to suit infrequent churchgoers". The set of infrequent churchgoers is not homogeneous, neither is the set of causes for their infrequency. A sense of the sacred, presented via chant and well executed choral music may well extend a welcome t...

Re: Hymnbook recommendations?

Few parishes use more than six or seven sets of Eucharistic Acclamations, for example. Not sure why they're included in hymnals at all. For many the material between the covers of the parish hymnal is the entire corpus of music which may be sung in the Church. Removing the Ordinary of the Mass from...

Re: Offertories

my greater concern is missals and mass-produced mass sheets not containing the proper text of the offertory anyway. The historians and liturgical scholars here will surely be able to tell those of us who are unaware whether or not the proper text for the offertorium is present in the Missale Romanu...
