Re: Liturgical Tourism

Spending a week in France just before Easter, I'd been expecting to ask for a lift to the above-mentioned church at Pont-Écrepin to see how they did Palm Sunday at their regular 11am Mass there. However, their priest also celebrates Masses at other churches in the area on a less regular basis, and I...

Alas, no. I was in Malta for the Triduum (liturgical abuses abounded! :? )
Would you like to tell us about them, HP? If they don't belong on this thread they could surely fit under "Liturgical Tourism".

Re: Easter Vigil - when did you start and finish?

... I was not a happy bunny to be playing the sunrise mass at 6am but I was delighted to be singing Joncas’ ‘As morning breaks’ as a post communion song just as the sun graced our worship. Did you take the opportunity to include Bernadette Farrell's "This is the night of new beginnings" (one of my ...

Re: Copyright

As far as Continuum's copyright claim is concerned, I believe I am right in saying that they only ever held copyright (as Burns & Oates, later Search Press, taken over by Continuum, which itself was subsequently taken over by Bloomsbury) in Brennan's text, not in Rigby's music. My copy of Laudate (...

Re: Copyright

On the "Liverpool Synod Hymn" thread https://www.ssg.org.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=2050&p=27482#p27475 ... ... This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the composition date, but if 1933 is correct (Rigby didn't die until 1952) then hymnary.org is wrong in sta...

Re: Funerals and autocrats

Or even the Londonderry air. A few years ago a violinist played this tune at the funeral of her mother, who was Irish. A friend, also with Irish ancestry, remarked that the name Alan29 used above was not acceptable south of the border, to which the priest, who had trained in France and therefore sp...

Re: Hymn for deceased parishioners

Sadly, having downloaded the files I couldn't open them - or rather, when I did they just appeared as gibberish! :( :?

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Today I paid a return visit to Pont-Écrepin in Normandy, where in the summer I'd experienced a relatively quiet Mass. This time they were back to what I gather is their normal routine, with children (about 25 of them today) and parents on one side of the sanctuary and choir (about ten) on the other ...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

It seems odd to pick a Sanctus and Great Amen from the same Mass setting (even though they look thematically and tonally unrelated to me) and then interpose a Memorial Acclamation adapted to fit a totally unrelated hymn tune. Composers submitting settings of the Sanctus to the Panel for approval are...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

... Disappointed though that we were asked not to join in the responses (as the server was deemed to be responding on behalf of the congregation). This was not how I remember from the 'olden days' where I first started going to Mass - we were then doing what was called a Dialogue Mass I believe, wi...

Welcome to the Forum, AGM! Any relation to the AGM credited with some of the response tones in the Grail Psalm collections you mention? :?

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Just one little change I'd make to Oops' CD cover: Every CD marketed should be obliged to carry on the front the message.... "You don't really need this just sing the Gospel Acclamation and the Sanctus and a few hymns that everyone knows". The congregational singing at the now-long-disappeared churc...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Anyway they had a tape backing for some hymns which were standard fare. No acclamations. The problem with the tape backing was that it stretched people's voices too early in the morning. 40-odd years ago at the church my parents went to then (no longer in existence), we tried playing taped hymn acc...

Re: A rather delightful Kyrie and Agnus Dei

Was it Haydn who said the thought of God always made him cheerful? He may well have said it, but I gather that his reply to criticism of the style of his Masses was that he preferred to praise God with a cheerful voice. Maybe that's the quote you're thinking of, Alan? Either way, it's a good princi...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

After the splendours of St Stephen’s, Vienna, the following Sunday saw me once again in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Roden, in the north of the Netherlands. As with all my previous visits there it was a Liturgy of the Word with Eucharist (LoW&E), because of the shortage of priests. Two laymen t...
