Re: Gloria

I was surprised to discover that the US Bishops have drawn attention to the desire in the Roman Missal third edition to use the Gloria more frequently than had been the case. Sacramental celebrations of marriage and confirmation will now be among those to be accompanied by the Gloria (even in Lent/...

Re: It's Friday! Singing out of Tune

Duplicate post, due to old age and venerability, and the clunky editing mechanism of the forum..... :(

Re: Another type of mass

I just want to point out, for the sake of clarity, that I haven't mentioned style at all in this discussion. No, and I didn't say you had. I was broadening the discussion because even the statement "We should be singing the Mass rather than singing at Mass" has been hijacked by people wit...

Re: Another type of mass

I understand hymns, worship songs, anything 'religious in it's content' sung at Mass to be religious music. Whereas, I understand the integral parts of the Mass (Kyrie, Gloria, etc etc) including the psalm to be liturgical music. For everyone, not just the original poster, I would say liturgical mu...

Someone else was talking about that today, but they said it was called "Marguerite". I had never heard of it, nor Madeleine.

Re: Another type of mass

I personally feel Kevin Keil's Cabrini Mass Gloria has little to commend it. If you are going abroad for a Gloria, I would suggest you take a look at Michael Joncas's Sing Praise and Thanksgiving Mass from WLP (World Library Publications). The Gloria has an excellent refrain and good verses.

Re: Oops

Assume this was an Anglican church as the Sursum Corda = Preface Dialogue in RC parlance, and RCs don't have a Gradual Hymn. Harris's King of Glory is a nice piece. Those who don't know it will find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MVT1eGNYZA at about 40:18.

Re: Liturgical Tourism

a song as the children went to their bit - about joining a circle. This must be Bernadette Farrell's Circle Song . I'd love to know why the exit procession for virtually every Liturgy of the Word for Children that I see in parishes uses this piece. (It also gets used a lot as the opening song for c...

Re: Percussion

How interesting - where is that quote from please? I thought we greeted the Gospel with the Acclamation and the homily should follow naturally. AN instrumental to cover the procession with the Book makes more sense. That paragraph was not a quote. It was me. But that doesn't make it any the less tr...

Re: Ernest Sands

Music sung at the funeral service for Ernie last Friday was all by Ernie himself:

Sing of the Lord's goodness
Psalm: I will call upon the Lord and bless his name
One of his Alleluia settings
God of all life, of every earthly blessing (We praise your name)
Song of Farewell: May the choirs of angels

Re: Percussion

The John Carroll Mass is by Michael Joncas. John Carroll was, I believe, the first Bishop of Baltimore, and thus the first RC bishop in the USA. Halle, halle which was repeated after the Gospel (I hate that!) Repeating the Acclamation after the Gospel actually has a lot to commend it. It is like mus...
