Re: The Government's Guidelines for Public Worship II - the return of choir groups

Keitha: is it "the use of cantors" that has "gone" or the restriction "only where essential" ?

Re: COVID-19 - Latest information from the Liturgy Office

I notice from the penultimate paragraph of the linked document ("Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil This will be dependent on the forthcoming decisions of the Bishops for the Holy Week ceremonies.") that the fate of the Holy Week eremonies was not decided at the time of writing. Has anythi...

Re: Help, Lord, the souls that thou hast made

After a fruitless search of the forum I wonder if anyone remembers the hymn which began "Merciful Saviour, hear our humble prayer, For all thy servants passed beyond life's care . . . " (sung to the Old124th) and has any idea why it has dropped out of the repertoire? - is it perhaps "unsound" in cur...

Re: Litany Of The Saints at Easter Vigil - Dare I ask . . ?

I'm not sure we ever resolved this to evryone's satisfaction, but may I ask: - if there is to be Reception but not a Bapstism does that have any effect on what is said or sung (and I suppose I'm mainly talking about the Litany although there still remains the minor question of that little Antiphon "...

Re: Hymns for Confirmation?

Thanks for all the help folks - I've gleaned a couple of useful suggestions and fed them into the decision process. I'll post the final selection (whenever I'm told what it is!)

Hymns for Confirmation?

Are there any hymns for Confirmation emerging as "classics" from the more contemporary end of the musical spectrum? Our horizons are usually limited to the contents of Laudate (original edition) which is rather thin on hymns to or about the Holy Spirit (and, curiously, although there is a section on...

Re: VENI CREATOR

- and was it not the norm (if not actually a "rule") that if a hymn which concluded with a doxology needed to be shortened for practical reasons the doxology was never omitted? (Groping in distant memories here!)

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

Narthex? - Shmarthex! - I was a reasonably fluent member of the church for more than half a century before I suddenly found myself inundated by these pseudo intellectual pseudo Greek words - narthexes and praxises and most recently charisms (incidentally all rejected by my spell checker :D ) - and y...

Lectionary for Sunday - the Holy Family - yr B

Not much time for your help on this, I'm afraid, but there seems to be some confusion about the texts for this Sunday - Liturgy and Music appears to have the texts which my humble "pew-fodder" Missal has for year A (it's the CTS New Missal, published 2011). My year B ones are quite different - inclu...

Re: First communion music

Our FHC Masses used to be depressing affairs . . .
