Corpus Christi - the sequence

('scuse the Latin - I'm a slow typist!)

Will anyone sing the Sequence this Sunday? - anyone know an English version? - is there a plainsong version (in English, that is)? - Is there a "hymn" equivalent?

Please attempt all questions :D

Re: Palm Sunday for guitars and flute

Why does the Palm Sunday liturgy require any instrumental accompaniment at all? Be bold - be 'a cappella!' We did the "purist" thing after the Gloria on Maundy Thursday - and I too warned the congregation that the fact that the organ did not "come in" for the Holy Holy etc did n...

Re: ' ... educating children in good liturgy?'

Our secondary school recently has its final Mass on present premises. They specifically asked for copies of the eucharistic acclamations sung in the parish and in two of the primaries. Methinks we're getting somewhere at last. Where's the "Smiley" for envy? - at a recent meeting the "...

Re: Two Issues (Communion Hymns and Month of May)

Aren't these the propers i.e the 'proper' text to be sung? Oh Dear, IncenseTom, I fear you have been lured into a well-known bear trap, and any minute SC will remind you that the "proper" Antiphon was specified precisely for those occasions when singing was for some reason not possible. I...

Re: Two Issues (Communion Hymns and Month of May)

The thing about the Communion Processional is its impracticability - we've tried a selection of hymns with refrains, or psalms or other chants with responses but the only voices that join in are a few of those in the pews who are not going to Communion or have not set out yet - no-one actually proce...

Re: New Celtic Liturgy (Walker)

Why on earth do people put things like this on YouTube? In fairnessw (I've calmed down now!) there's a comment added by someone who appears to know the singer praising the clip (somewhat over-effusively, I think) and referring to the possibility that it's a rehearsal clip for the choir, so a good e...

Re: New Celtic Liturgy (Walker)

It's an old topic, I know, but being obliged to research the New Celtic Liturgy ("requested" for a service for which the choice of music is beyond my control) I dug out first this thread, and then the YouTube clip linked below to see how it should be done (!) Ah well - - at lease I won't e...

Do I misunderstand? - do you mean singing in parallel 5ths, John? - how is that shown in the notation?
