Re: Presentation of the Lord

We almost didn't! Readings of the day but we omitted the specific gathering rite and candle blessing. Interesting mix of music from Advent, Christmas and Epiphany – but it all fitted! And, as today celebrated the second (arguably third) theophany we finished with Paul Inwood's "Take Christ to the Wo...

Re: Paraphrases - yet again!

As I understand it, texts which are mandatory (Behold the Wood of the Cross or Exsultet) should use the prescribed texts. However, those which are optional (Reproaches or Ubi Caritas) don't have to. I'm sure there are those who will explain this more fully.

Re: Salazar Gloria

We didn't sing a Gloria last night. But at the end of the Gospel we linked into Paul Inwood's Joyful News to You I Bring, after which the deacon proclaimed, "The Gospel of the Lord". Worked well and the once-a-year brigade, all huddled at the back, sang heartily!

Re: Help, Lord, the souls that thou hast made

It's by a chap named JH Newman.
See Westminster Hymnal (1939 edition) and Parish Hymn Book.
Takes me back to primary school. :)

Thanks for the pointer, SC. An interesting thread which affects many of us in the UK.

Re: New hymnbooks

We have Laudate and, apart from occasional midweek use, it sits unloved on its shelves. We print weekly service sheets as they're much more flexible. There's a discussion about this very issue here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/300911236958173/ (Seventh post down!)

Re: One License takes over from Calamus

I'd be tempted to look at the fund-raisers separately. If it's a charitable event, most copyright holders will grant permission gratis. Friend of mine recently had a very nice letter from Paul McCartney, giving permission for some of his stuff to be performed and recorded by a Singing For The Brain ...

And I've just seen my spelling error above – alas, this board doesn't allow correction.
I will, instead, beat myself soundly!

Re: New facebook Group

Yes, Musicky Liturgy Things is for workaday parish musicians and composers – as well as the person in the pew. It's just a place to share ideas and (hopefully) best practise. Not competing with this excellent message board or with Facebook groups for organists – am sure we can all co-exist! :D

Re: New facebook Group

Posts and comments flash up on your phone/tablet and it's so easy to like, laugh or cry.
Also, there's no moderation – although I totally understand why the SSG moderates a message board bearing its logo.

Or perhaps Southwark cathedral has a taller and narrower aspect than Westminster?
Or Liverpool! :D

Re: Installation of new Archbishop of Southwark

I'm presuming that the video ratio was slightly out – otherwise Cardinal Nichols has become shorter and wider!
