Re: Remembrance Sunday

The Gelineau 'Nunc Dimittis' (At last all powerful master you give leave to your servant to go' ) is very easy. It was in the first 'Praise the Lord'
and other hymn collections.

Re: Remembrance Sunday

Thank you for this. It is almost exactly as I notated the melody from memory. Any ideas about the actual names of the composers whose initials are given? That sometimes indicates that they might be members of a religious order. Another thought. I was brought up reciting the 'De profundis' in English...

Re: Remembrance Sunday

Yes, this is the one. I cannot access page 2. I also have a copy worked out from memory by myself (I put it into D major). There must be some real music in someone's cupboards.

Re: Remembrance Sunday

No, that's not the one. There is another metricised one in the Leeds Catholic Hymnal which is not the one I know either.

Re: Remembrance Sunday

I think I know the one you mean. We used to sing it at my Convent School. The last time I heard it was about thirty years ago at a funeral
in St. George's Church in York so perhaps it was a Middlesbrough speciality.

Re: First communion music

Forgive me for asking, but if, as Markyboy says, the children rarely come to church except with the school, why are they being allowed to make their First Holy Communions anyway? Is there not a requirement that priests should have a well-founded belief that candidates will be brought up in the faith...

Re: Pentecost sequence.

Why do they have to?
Active participation does not mean that every body must sing every thing.

Re: Pentecost sequence.

Why not sing Caswall's 'Holy spirit, Lord of light' to the beautiful Plainsong of 'Veni Sancte Spiritus? It has always seemed to me that the translation was specifically crafted to be sung to that melody just as the usually given 'Christians to the Paschal Victim' translation of the Easter Sunday se...

Re: Christmas on TV and radio

I agree with what has been said about Birmingham, especially about the Archbishop's singing. I thought the Mass Setting was a poor choice (did they omit the Benedictus?). I was also sorry they did not include what for me are the two markers of Catholicity at Christmas: Adeste Fideles (arr. V. Novell...

Re: Cardinal Sarah

Is this supposed to be a reasoned contribution to discussion? What have South American slums to do with anything,
especially in connection with a Cardinal from Africa?

Re: Liturgical Tourism

In another part of God's own County I can vouch for the popularity of the Weiner 'Our Father'. It is sung about twice a month at different Masses and is always rousing. The congregation are on their own for at least six out of eight weekend Masses each month and usually make a very good sound with b...

REQUIEM IN LIVERPOOL

Was anyone else as disgusted as I was by the car crash of Liturgical and Musical abuse on display at the funeral of a pop-star in a Liverpool Catholic Church yesterday? The BBC web-site gave full details. Is that Bishop a Catholic? Does he believe in the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacr...
