Re: One License takes over from Calamus

Thanks, Nick; however, I can see no exclusion listed for funerals on the paperwork online or the licence itself.
The diocesan leaflet with a Calamus number on it was a priest's funeral.
I'll probably cancel at renewal in November, especially if the cost is rising so much

Re: One License takes over from Calamus

We don't produce service sheets, successive PPs have been against them. We occasionally have diocesan services, which are covered by the diocese's license. One of the reasons I took one out was to cover funerals, because undertakers told me they didn't have a license themselves, but expected the chu...

You have to wonder about one event hymns.
Was there nothing suitable among the thousands out there?
A one-hit wonder if ever there was.

Re: Do you want a laugh?

As stipends go £6k sounds pretty good, considering the workload. Most of us get nowt, except for funerals/weddings.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

In my church, when I'm on the west gallery organ with the choir around me, we start singing a hymn during the minsters' communion, as per GIRM, and continue until the minister comes upstairs with Communion for ourselves. Once we begin to recieve I"ll finish the hymn, so I can also partake, and then ...

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: 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 ...
