Re: ICEL new Missal texts sampler

If the use of the present ICEL translation is never abrogated, perhaps priests will just continue to use it. I was wondering if they might just do that anyway. Particularly worried about the people's parts – will we really have to start a whole new bunch of acclamations and must my parish throw out...

Re: Two queries for my small choir

Not wishing to throw a spanner in the works, I'm wondering why you're aiming at New People's Mass when there's so much more available which will is easier for the assembly to learn and more interesting for them to sing and with choir parts of varying complexity.

I have heard of such things but we'd never get the people there in time. If you are doing a sing before Mass, I'd omit the angels and Glorias in excelsis Deo and save those for Mass. As for the liturgy planners, they're all excellent but, yes, they are far too late for general use. However, if you r...

According to http://www.famousbelgians.net there's also Jeanne Deckers, better known as The Singing Nun, so we're still on a musical theme.

Re: Paying an organist

As usual, an interesting and considered reply from Thomas. One always gets the impression he really thinks about what he's writing. I, on the other hand, have a couple of Scotches and dive in – brain disengaged! However, it's now lunchtime and I'm having a coffee... ... 30 years ago how the paid o...

I live in a part of the world where – even post war – this song waas a jingoistic anthem rather than a declaration of faith. People sang it as they were being attacked by the Other Side and some really did die in these pitched battles. Our church used to have bouncers on the doors (particularly ...

Would love to hear the one about the "Young choral scholar from Kings" so feel free to PM me.

In the meantime:

A cleric once heard with dismay
Each week he worked only one day.
He said, with a sigh:
"I cannot think why
I'm so busy on days when I play".

Yes, I know one about an Old Bishop of Birmingham but I'm afraid it might cause a few too many bleeps.

Damien Thompson seems determined to keep going on this one. He's had a go at my comments above which has encouraged bloggers to offer to send my Kleenex etc. He's also having a go at Baptised With Fire. Not sure what he's done that's so much better but he certainly has the bit between his teeth. htt...

That's the first blog I've ever read which has made me cry – with anger and frustration, I suspect. Why are these people so spiteful?
