Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Even if not mandatory, I'm not sure why one wouldn't want to match the three acclamations. Perhaps I am just used to the tradition in England & Wales which predates the requirements of the Permission to Publish Panel! 8) While I agree with you, Nick, that matching the three acclamations with the Ho...

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

I'm not quite sure what point AGM is making. Yes, there are variations of Grail I in the Divine Office, but it is still essentially Grail I. And yes, the Divine Office did use the 1966 Singing Version of Grail I with Gregory Murray's few changes as a basis, even though the prior approval was for the...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

The title of Margaret Daly's collection was Alleluia, Amen! The setting of "When we eat" is to the hymn tune ST COLUMBA. It was originally done at the St Thomas More Centre in London in 1974, and fits well with the former text "we proclaim your death, Lord Jesus, until you come in glory". T.C. Kelly...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Thanks for this link, Nick! The "Lourdes Gloria" is still listed as being by Jean-Paul Lécot, whereas readers of this forum will know that Lécot "borrowed" (without permission or acknowledgement) Mgr Francis's Duffy's Gloria verses, reharmonized them (badly) and redistributed the text, adding a four...

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

Just so that those reading this thread are clear: The version of the Grail psalms authorized for use in England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Australia is Grail I, the 1963 version. It is contained both in the Lectionaries of those countries and in the Divine Office used in those countries. NB: t...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

They must have a better organ at Palazzola than they did when I was there a few years ago. Mendelssohn and Widor would have been impossible!

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

You do realise that the psalm version you have given (which I have not identified) is not the one authorised for use in this country, i.e. Grail I (1963) ? Also, the response is not the usual one for this psalm in our Lectionary. All that being so, it seems a little unlikely that anyone in the UK wi...

Re: Clericalism?

This is worth exploring: https://www.divinerenovationuk.org Divine Renovation seems to work well in those cases where the priest wants to move on, not if he doesn't. Be aware that, like other programs from across the Pond, this one plugs Praise and Worship music to the exclusion of all else. They s...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Its a really good joyful setting. Alas there seem to be no simple, memorably and zingy setting for the new translation. Unless people know different ...... You might almost suspect that the new translation was deliberately constructed to impede memorableness and zinginess. And on earth peace to peo...

Re: Hymns for Confirmation?

Unfortunately, in my experience, silence during the anointing of the candidates, particularly if they are numerous, soon turns into the low buzz of conversation that gradually, sometimes rapidly, increases in volume, rising to quite a substantial background chatter. Checking mobile phones is also co...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

Is anyone else marking the new feast of Mary, Mother of the Church on 21 May? We've been asked to host a Mass for our pastoral area. But I just can't get my head round the suggested psalm: 86 with the refrain "Of you are told glorious things, O city of God" – and I'm not sure how it follows on from...

Re: Mary, Mother of the Church

These feasts were instituted too late to get into the 2018 Ordos so they won't be celebrated in most parishes. Feasts do tend to come and go as the years pass and perceptions change: the Circumcision of Our Lord and Our Lady of Ransom went in the 1960s. Jan1 probably holds the record for the number...

Re: Come Back Again

Nowt wrong with consecutive 5ths. Ask Vaughan Williams. No, as long as they are used deliberately by people who know what they are doing. This composer, along with many others, didn't. It is acceptable to "disguise" consecutives by using secondary 7ths, 9ths, etc. This composer, along with many oth...
