Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Although cantor/people, we tend to use longer refrains for the Communion Song. And we make sure it ends as the last person receives – helps create a nice post-Communion silence.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Totally agree, HP. But they don't have to have zillions of words to be reasonably long. See examples above.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Those who criticise should try to write something better. I like longer refrains – more for the assembly to get its teeth into. Same with the responsorial psalm! I like Paul Inwood's longer psalm refrains: O blessed are those who fear the Lord and I will praise you, Lord.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Yes, we use a few pieces from Psallite. But I'm not sure it includes the sort of pieces I'm thinking of. I'm looking for longer refrains, something they can get their teeth into. Really just looking for recommendations of what works well in other places.

Communion Processionals – Revived

Back in April, 2011, I started a thread, The Trouble with Communion Processionals . The late Fr Peter Jones later followed this up with The Trouble with Communion Processionals and beyond . Both attracted a good number of posts. Back in 2011, I was wringing my hands over Communions Processionals – I...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

On a slight tangent, I have never really understood the distribution of communion on Good Friday – again, outside Mass.

Re: ADOREMUS

Live in Liverpool Archdiocese. But we never really found out what it was all about – well, apart from Jimmy McGovern answering questions about his TV series, Broken, in a local church.

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

It may be the norm for published Masses to include all the Mass parts, but in average parishes it is certainly not the norm to use a matching set at the same Mass. I wonder why. Using matching thematic material makes it much easier for the assembly. For example, they will instinctively know which A...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

While I agree with you, Nick, that matching the three acclamations with the Holy and Great Amen is desirable, others suggest that different music is permissible, even desirable, because all these texts are in different literary forms. For example: Holy, holy — acclamation We proclaim your death, O ...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Meanwhile, in parishes where 'nobody has time for practices,' and it is about the art of the possible, we almost always sing the simple chant Amen. Although with a matching set, the Amen should flow fairly easily – many follow the same pattern as the Hosanna, for example. I always feel the Amen sho...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Even if not mandatory, I'm not sure why one wouldn't want to match the three acclamations. Perhaps I am just used to the tradition in England & Wales which predates the requirements of the Permission to Publish Panel! 8)

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

That setting of When We Eat This Bread is well-known in Ireland and appeared in several Irish collections in the 80s, including one edited by Margaret Daly – the name of it escapes me.

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

The refrain is so short it would be very difficult for an average congregation – and weddings usually attract many who aren't used to singing. A very wedding-y psalm, is Paul Inwood's Psalm 127 O blessed are those who fear the Lord – although the words are mostly addressed to the bloke and there's t...

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".
