"the Real Presence"

Re: Pastoral liturgy and pastoral music

Hi Keith & Tom. In my view -- people can really take ownership of quality texts & music over a period of time -- for example -- the 42 years in which the Grail Psalms have been sung at the church where I serve on music team. Further to this -- a great deal of music has proved to be more than...

Re: Music and Liturgy: Letter to the Editor

Hi everyone, However, I was very disappointed to see there was no mention made of singing the Proper of the Mass (the Entrance antiphon, for example).
