Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

But am I right in thinking one can bequeath copyright to another? No, I don't think so. If that were the case, lots of composers' later descendants would still be living off royalties. As it is, when the composer has been dead 70 years the work becomes public domain. The whole area is of course a m...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

Ghastly! And probably holding the world record for the number of parallel fifths between melody and bass! Must have been a pupil of RVW. There's a world of difference between RVW knowing what he was doing and "breaking the rules" deliberately to achieve a certain effect, and composers who unwitting...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

And click here for a true Liverpool anthem, where the tune (at least), Merseyside, was commissioned for the laying of the foundation stone of the Metropolitan Cathedral. You’ll have to spool forward to 1’53”. This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the comp...

So it's £6,200 for 280 hours (cathedral) per annum plus 30 hours (diocesan events).
So that's about 57% of the going rate in this part of the world.

Re: Do you want a laugh?

For those having difficulty finding the ad on the cathedral's website (some sections have not been updated for some considerable time), go to https://stmariecathedral.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/10th-February-2019-5th-Sunday-per-annum-C.pdf and scroll down to page 4. No salary is mentioned in the...

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

What is to stop people singing from a book as they process, and simply popping it under their arm or in a pocket as they receive? Quite difficult to lift a chalice to your lips with a hymn book tucked under your arm.... Yes, it's possible, but the movement is constrained and can lead to accidents.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Totally agree, HP. But they don't have to have zillions of words to be reasonably long. See examples above. Agree. And for High Peak and others who are worried about loads of words, it all depends on what those words are and how memorable the whole thing is. When people say they think long response...

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Yes, we use a few pieces from Psallite. But I'm not sure it includes the sort of pieces I'm thinking of. I'm looking for longer refrains, something they can get their teeth into. Really just looking for recommendations of what works well in other places. Quite a few of the Psallite antiphons are ac...

Re: Pipe organ St John's Cathedral, Salford

The question that I have never found an answer to is why the original 4-manual instrument was ditched in favour of the Compton in the 1930s. Perhaps Martin can enlighten us.

Re: Communion under both kinds

AGM — It really is pointless producing yet more material in support of intinction when what has been cited above is already conclusive as far as England and Wales are concerned. I took a look at a draft of the Norms for the Distribution of Holy Communion from the England and Wales Bishops that have...

Re: Communion under both kinds

I think intinction is an option in England and Wales Writing from Australia, you are not aware of the legislation in place in England and Wales which means that intinction for the laity is not an option in England and Wales. (1) In 1976 the Bishops' Conference determined that the choice of whether ...

Re: Communion under both kinds

distribution under both kinds involves intinction, which is not permitted in England & Wales. (Perhpas becuase it smacks of self-administration, which is reserved to the ordained?) It can smack of self-administration (banned by Inaestimabile Donum as mentioned in the previous comment) when self-int...

Re: Communion under both kinds

Southern Comfort wrote about Communion under both kinds: “Now it is permitted, and even encouraged, on all occasions, as the above quotations show.” The 2004 Instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum has: “[102.] The chalice should not be ministered to lay members of Christ’s faithful where there is suc...

Re: Communion under both kinds

The most important paragraph in GIRM concerning Communion under both kinds is one that AGM did not mention: 85. It is most desirable that the faithful, just as the Priest himself is bound to do, receive the Lord’s Body from hosts consecrated at the same Mass and that, in the cases where this is fore...
