Origins of the Preface

Good evening brethren and sistren,
I wonder can anyone throw a little light on the origin and history of The Preface to the Eucharistic Prayer?
To my shame I so often take the Preface for granted, often listening out for crucial cue-words such as "May our voices be one with them . . . "
Thanks,
Gwyn.

Re: Help, Lord, the souls that thou hast made

Merciful Saviour, hear our humble prayer, For all thy servants passed beyond life's care . . .
That's a new one - or rather an old one - on me Quaeritor.

I agree with SC about using a responsorial Gloria. By introducing that, and a psalm response, before Mass, you're saying to the visitors, "You're welcome to be here and we'd love you to sing." Smile at them – and at their kids – and you'll get them on board.
Definitely. :)

Re: Involving visitors - music of First Holy Communion

. . . have a rite of blessing and sprinkling water to remind everyone, including the children, of their baptism, since 1st Communion is part of the initiation process. Then you can do a sprinkling song with a refrain, which will assist participation.
An excellent suggestion S.C.

Paul Inwood's chat on the matter of mispronounced bible book names, and words such as covenant is hysterically funny.

Re: 16ft manual stop:
It can be useful, I sometimes draw it for a final verse of a rousing hymn, then play the verse up an octave. This gives added zing.

Depends on the voicing.
Hence "can" and "sometimes." :wink:

Re: Antiphonal Singing of Latin Plainchant Mass Settings

Keraulophon notes:
Most of those seated near me were not able to join in the traditional Latin prayers and plainsong melodies. Apparently it's not only in the UK that familiarity has been lost!
A tragedy, and on our watch. Shame on us.

Quite delicious.
Thanks everyone,

Re: Unity with Liturgical Diversity

I often attend an Ordinariate Celebration of Holy Mass in Rogerstone, South-East Wales. Mass is celebrated with dignity and reverence. The music is typically Anglican - no bad thing. The Mass setting is poor, sounding like it's been cobbled together by a committee. A very capable organist plays regu...
