Re: Help please! - Advent Matins Responsory

Thanks for the help, Kietha. I'm taking it that the "Office of Readings" is "the book formerly known as Breviary" and is the ultimate source book for this text. Is the translation you give that of 1972 (if I have that right), or is there a more recent one? I notice that it still ...

Help please! - Advent Matins Responsory

Hello folks - I'm helping a rather ad-hoc little choir prepare an Advent carol service, and I thought it might be a good idea to open with the Responsory from Matins of the First Sunday of Advent. However, the one which they (and you) might have heard - the one in Carols for Choirs 2 (Palestrina via...

Re: Notation software

So reports of Sibelius's demise were exaggerated then? - is the Sibelius/Finale debate still running? BTW, after my post above I noticed that the current website for Personal Composer states it was introduced in 1983, so I can offer no explanation for the file date I quoted (especially as I didn't b...

Re: Notation software

I've just revisited this thread (and re-read the whole of it! - do I qualify for a gold star?) because I'm thinking (again!, but seriously this time) of moving away from Windows - fed up of continually having to re-learn stuff for what are in effect new operating systems, or new Office systems and t...

Re: Farewell to uk (as we know it)

I fell for it, HallamPhil - accessed this thread partly curious to see how you would give a liturgical slant to discussing "that vote", but also rather hoping to find a discussion of the morality of our supposedly mutually hostile "leaders" getting together to promise something t...

Re: Help sought

Thanks, IncenseTom - I was able to extract from that source just what I need for this evening - the "Mystery of Faith" acclamations neatly on one page - but what I am really looking for is a single sheet (A4 folded into an A5 leaflet) which has if I remember rightly all the assembly's resp...

Help sought

I recall seeing a reference to downloadable sheets with the congregation's music from the missal, but can't recall where or when. Can anyone help, please?

Re: All things to all people?

Sounds like I'm in a minority of one, but I guess I take what you will probably think the pessimistic view - if you mix up the styles you ensure that everyone present will have something to dislike! We've adopted the alternate weeks strategy - choir and organ one week and the band on the other (mont...

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 "...
