Re: New 'Phase 4' Guidelines

Quite disappointed not to have generated any discussion of this - have I blundered into one of those things that we just don't talk about - "more honoured in the breach" and all that?

Re: Singing again

What is Shrine Mass 11? Come to that, what is Shrine Mass? Entering "Shrine Mass" into a Well-Known-Search-Engine tells me (via an Equally-Well-Known-Advisor-On Journeys) that it is one of three shrines in Massachussetts, and if "11" is two and not eleven it would be the National Shrine of Our Lady...

"Responsorial" Gloria

Thinking it's probably still a good idea to avoid hymn books and music leaflets for the time being I'm going to reintroduce our congregation to singing again by including, among other things, a "Responsorial" Gloria. As we haven't sung such since the days of the (old translation) Lourdes Gloria I'm ...

Re: New 'Phase 4' Guidelines

. . . the Bishops are hoping to reintroduce the Sunday obligation on the First Sunday of Advent. I had rather hoped that this mediaeval approach might be allowed to fade quietly away. I have never really understood why those who believe themselves to have been granted the keys to the kingdom of hea...

Re: The Great Awakening

Not sure what point you are making, Oops - but then I'm not sure what point you were making with the OP! - and far from sure what the liturgical connections or implications are - ?

Clearly I'm among the "anyone else" who are not awake.

Re: Bishops' Vademecum for Holy Week 2021

Thanks, John Ainslie, for some useful ideas, particularly the simplification of the Alleluia which I shall try to persuade the PP to use. Could I divert you for a moment to what happens in a "normal" year, the directions for which still leave me bemused - seeming to have been put together by two dif...

Re: Bishops' Vademecum for Holy Week 2021

I've failed to find this on the Liturgy Office website, so here it is attached. Thanks for a useful link - I'd also failed to find any such advice on the L O website - and also on the (rather impenetrable) website of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. A couple of details seem to be missed: - The Exsult...

Re: Virtual Choir Software - MixPad

I unfortunately missed the workshop - is it available to watch "on demand" in any way - or even an old-fashioned write-up to read?

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 "...
