Re: Muzak for the Mass

I know what you mean about identifying muzak, and the distraction! Re the Pachelbel, it was the in and out cd for a funeral I did three weeks ago. First since new PP arrived, but another priest was doing it. Quite a search for the cd player, so I said I'd play it. Player found, and used for entrance...

Re: Muzak for the Mass

Too true oops! So far, thank God, we have not had recorded music for Sunday Mass, but a 'suitable' CD (not so suitable when it breaks into Glorias and Alleluias during Passiontide,) is played during confessions at the Lent and Advent reconciliation services; we used to have the choir singing Taize c...

Thank you Mary. One day maybe....
The Facebook info too puts a lovely face to the name and voice of the Rev Lucy.

It will be a lovely day.

Re: I enjoyed that!

Quite, a play through is so important with new tunes. And so is an intro that identifies even well known hymns. Somehow I don't know how to tell the 12 string guitarist who leads alternate weeks here that a couple of strummed chords gives no indication, especially as we are not using hymn books, and...

Re: Gloria settings

Our parish likes Nick Baty's Eldonian Gloria, and we use St Paul the Apostle Mass, by Chris Walker, and for simplicity, Belmont. Mike Stanley's Mass of St Bernadette is another, but it starts on top D which is not always helpful.

Re: First communion music

:( It is truly horrible when no-one sings. It throws me at funerals. But having people behave as your congregation did seems to be part of FHC these days. It has happened in our church, at FHC and also a few weddings. Seasonal/ feast day music is, quite reasonably, of the day or the season, so not m...

Re: I enjoyed that!

You are right HP. It disturbed me when our Confirmation Mass booklets used to have a welcome note at the front 'We hope you enjoy our Mass.' I hated it and managed to get it dropped. Truly not the point.

Re: First communion music

I know our FHC Masses are looming- we need two weeks to cover the number of children. We used to sing the psalm every week. Now it is hit and miss on alternate Sundays when the other music leader is in charge, and for FHC I know I will be told that the children are reading it, as well as the Allelui...

Re: Confirmation Mass

I have now clarified with the diocese that our bishop does prefer readings of the day, as we have had for the last six years. Actually, the story of Tobit is a good yarn about acceptance, -so long as we have a good reader...... Thank you for your help, especially mob, who in an earlier post pointed ...
