Re: Funerals and autocrats

Sorry, did you just insult 90% of the organists in the country who struggle through and provide faithfully some degree of music, week in week out, in their parish, with no stipend just the fees for funerals and weddings? Did you enquire properly why the organist couldn't play Mozart, etc - heavy act...

Re: Communion under both kinds

Thank you Southern Comfort, I was recalling how we were instructed in preparation for the new translation 2011, using Celebrating the Mass. Our PP at the time took great trouble to explain the changes, which led to an interesting meeting with a number of attendees rattling off the Latin as learnt as...

Re: Communion under both kinds

I thought, maybe wrongly, that Communion under both kinds and the Sign of Peace were part of the Mass, and should be offered, even if not everyone partakes.

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Not just in France. I was at a West London parish two weeks ago, still singing the Salazar Gloria with gusto.

Re: Ascension Day

There was a report on a Catholic website a couple of years back, that in Rome Corpus Christi is celebrated twice. The Vatican celebrates on the Thursday with the traditional procession along the Via Merulana from St John's to St Mary Major, adding to the cutomary traffic chaos no doubt. The city and...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

Thanks for the link to the Liturgy Office. This now throws up ANOTHER 'new feast - OLJC,the eternal high priest. Why are we expected to bring in new feasts almost without warning? On a positive note; this morning's Ascension Mass was very well attended, as if it had never been transfered. Let's hope...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

This has passed me by - is it a recent addition? Our Middlesbrough Ordo doesn't mention it.

Re: I Sing Pop, 'Christian music project'

I seriously doubt that adults trying to pander to children's tastes will impress or include them. With this I Sing Pop! initiative, laudable as it is, I can't help wondering if it is the opportunity to make music, with all its electronic accutriments, and to make a recording of it, that is the draw ...

And a few free-to-use but hopefully return Rosaries are a must!

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

Most of the items listed are ephermeral. Designate persons to: remove out-of-date collection envelopes (such as Cafod - I've seen tables with both Lent and Harvest envelopse); remove ANY dog-earred offerings, no matter how relevant; and thin out the prayer board, maybe by operating an invisible fort...

That's the folks; she played for a number of years, and then their daughter Mildred until she took ill. There are also extensive press reports of concerts, soirees etc, where they participated.

Re: Procession of Bridesmaids

My next wedding seems to be suitably vague. Starting time of about 4.30 or maybe 5 on the Wednesday after Christmas, with everyone arriving by bus from the reception. They are expecting me, priest and registrar to hang around while they ferry over 100 guests, who are only expecting an engagement par...

Re: Remembrance Sunday

We used to sing this at every evening funeral reception; Lord alone knows what non-practicising or non-RC folks made of it. As for the initials - I was told that the piece was written by friends of the organist here in Whitby around the turn of the century, a Mrs Helen Alder and her husband Thomas, ...

I've finally found a copy of Out of the Depths, from a cupboard in the church. .
