Re: Musical Accompaniment to the Divine Office

Hi HP - thanks indeed for the offer of help. Much appreciated. It is a mini-project I've been mulling over for a couple of years, but given the experience at Westminster, it has pushed me into trying something more locally. I will be in touch via PM.. Thanks indeed.

Re: Tambling - Mass of St Andrew?

Thanks SC - I had tried them in my original search, but you are right that it clearly the most likely place. I don't see it on their website, but will give them a call tomorrow.
Thanks for your suggestion.

Re: Musical Accompaniment to the Divine Office

Hi Gwyn, many thanks for coming back to me, and for sending me the sample PDF. Much much appreciated. Yes, it was Vespers basically that I was looking to do. The simpler the better for me, but as I said, I am keen that (especially for the verses) that there is some level of accompaniment. Once I hav...

Re: New look website - RSS Feed?

Dear colleagues, like many, I love the "new" website - significant key advantage being that it is now readable on a variety of devices etc. Great work. I might be wrong, but in the updated forum, I think I miss the RSS feed option which I am sure was there in the old one? Has anyone else n...

Musical Accompaniment to the Divine Office

Hello all - for some time I have been trying to make some kind of start into (on specific occasions) singing the Divine Office. It has been somewhat of a long term thing, but has recently come back into focus for me since being at Westminster Cathedral some weeks ago (in fact on the feast of St Ceci...

Tambling - Mass of St Andrew?

Dear friends I was at a largish event away from my own parish, some weeks ago, and heard (and sung!) for the first time, the Mass of St Andrew by Christopher Tambling. I felt that this was very accessible for congregations, and have considered introducing it locally during this coming year, once we ...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Alles Gut in Munich Work commitments have (unusually) kept me in Munich this weekend, and I found a "local" medium-sized Parish in Southern Munich this morning for the 11am Heilige Messe. I don't speak much German at all, but what a treat. A very modern church, set in a rectangle, with the...

Re: Service of rededication/commission of musicians, etc

Dear HP.. I can't add much to the fantastic suggestions already made, but one thing I did want to offer was a Hymn Suggestion !! Some years ago I was at a music day where we were invited to "renew" our commitment to our ministry as part of the broader day. I was very taken with the opening...

Re: Teaching New Music.....

Dear all - thanks for the great suggestions. Peter, in particular, thanks - what a great idea - I had not noted that it was CM, although looking even at the way the words are laid out in the Hymn Book I should have realised sooner!! But in general you do give there a really useful tip which I apprec...

Teaching New Music.....

Hi all - a number of recent posts have discussed the subject of New Music, and also I note people talking to the congregation before mass with appropriate messages like "Don't stop singing when the organ stops, etc" - which is all brilliant. As I have become increasingly braver with music ...

Re: Gelineau - The Lord is my Shepherd - guitar chords?

Seems this is very quickly sorted!! Thanks VML. I also realised later on this morning that it's in the Celebration Hymnal for Everyone - Hymn 502 I believe.

Re: Gelineau - The Lord is my Shepherd - guitar chords?

Hi High Peak - welcome aboard!

I have a friend who is evangelical about the Gelineau Psalms and is also a guitarist. I don't believe they are an SSG forum user (yet!) but I will contact him today and pass on your question directly in case they have what you are looking for.
