I think in the end someone in your parish has to make a decision about books, copyright, the morality of photocopying etc. If they will not spend on books, then the only option is to have a diet of public-domain hymns, and mass settings that can be learned by heart. There IS always one other option,...

Musicus, thanks for clarifying my meaning - you got it exactly right. "It puzzles (and frustrates) me why folk are so opposed to anything different in church. Do these people never try a new recipe, never watch a new TV programme, never go somewhere different on holiday" I BET they read th...

Reginald I agree with you. (Hang on, I must have a lie down in a darkened room!) My memory of the liturgical changes around the Entrance, "Offertory" and Communion chants is that the antiphons in the missal would once again become just that - antiphons that were a refrain for all to sing b...

....... would it be the end of the world if we either used the Graduale Romanum, or the Graduale Simplex or better yet (in terms of where we are now), vernacular translations of the same. Now who sets the tune for such translations wouldn't bother me at all __________________________________________...

Why is that so many of these self proclaimed traditionalists fail so miserably to sound Christian when they try so hard to sound "Catholic?" Can anyone point us in the direction of a Trad blog/site that doesn't come across as *beep* and devoid of love? That apart, the man has launched a dr...

Are my Methodist friends missing out by not receiving Christ, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament? Of course they are - and what kind of friend would I be if I didn't want them to experience that grace? _____________________________________________________________ Doesn't Christ supply when we la...

Do you remember when there were no women allowed to do the readings? ____________________________________________________________ Women????? I remember the Medieval Rite where no laity at all were allowed to read at Mass. Can't remember if the return to the Medieval Rite will bring that back - memor...

Oh dear, Nick. You have pretty well expressed my own feelings on this. What with this matter and the recent unnecessary slaps in the face to our separated brethren, this has become a church that I no longer feel a part of. There seems to be a denial of the work of the Holy Spirit in the Council and ...

I am one of those who has sometimes questioned the use of choirs. However, it is not choirs, per se that I have problems with, but the atrocious level of performance that all too often detracts from the liturgy. There are times when the old silent Tridentine Low Mass would be preferable. And that is...

I am particularly looking forward to singing "Follow me, follow me" and "Here I am Lord" in Latin. After all they are only the newer equivalent of "Sweet Sacrament Divine." But seriously, I think it is damaging to the unity of the church because the question of which Mi...
