Re: Liturgical Tourism

That would be very sad. The conversation has flowed from someone's experiences. Without that, it would just be "What I did on me 'ollydays".

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Had to look up an old missal to check it was "peace to his people on earth". Feels as though we have natural stresses on "peace", "people" and "earth". Present translation, it's so easy to end up with the stresses on "earth" and "people". But I've had a large gin. :oops: In one of my settings, in an...

And God is always the Father figure.
Works for me. But not, perhaps, for those whose experience of "father" is negative or non-existent.

Ascension Day

Am I the only person who hadn't noticed that Ascension Day has moved back to a Thursday from this year? (Although Corpus Christi hasn't.) Planning seventh Sunday of Easter (at short notice) for the first time in years.

Mary, Mother of the Church

Is anyone else marking the new feast of Mary, Mother of the Church on 21 May? We've been asked to host a Mass for our pastoral area. But I just can't get my head round the suggested psalm: 86 with the refrain "Of you are told glorious things, O city of God" – and I'm not sure how it follows on from ...

Had lunch with her and Jim about this time last year – their penultimate son, Peter, was my bezzie at school. Now quite an accomplished countertenor!

Failing that I will use the piano sound.
Try piano and strings together – you can add weight once you've played the note and the strings appear to fade in. All depends on the sampling, I suppose.

Re: Digital piano gurus wanted

We have Clavinovas in two of our churches. I asked one of our local digi dealers (Dawsons) and was told this wasn't possible – still doubt it though. I often use midi in which case you can have organ dynamics – but the last time I suggested midi on here, there were calls for my execution. Also, midi...

Re: Responsorial Psalm

Where are we up to with the much-discussed changes to our lectionary? I can't imagine any publisher producing a new responsorial psalm book until that's clear.

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

Like so many organisations, the SSG relies on a faithful few who work tirelessly for the society. It would seem a tad churlish to grumble if things are not as others would like them. And I'm reminded of the lady who always complains about quality of the after-Mass biscuits but has yet to donate any ...
