Re: Lectionary for Sunday - the Holy Family - yr B

Very interesting, SC. We'll be sticking with Mr Inwood's "O blessed are those" which seems to fit both choices of first reading. Can't really see anyone singing "He, the Lord, is our God. He remembers his covenant for ever."

Re: O Holy Night

Yep, we've used Peace Child a few times over the years.

Re: O Holy Night

We've used it a few times over the years – as a warm up for the assembly, about 10 mins before kick-off, with soft brass ensemble chords underneath (ra-ta-ta taaa, ra-ta-ta taaa). Not one of my faves but it works well round here and is often requested. When you have a church full of once-a-year folk...

Re: Gloria settings

If anyone fancies trying out a new Gloria, PM me for a freebie. This one's not officially out until September.

Re: Gloria settings

We're looking for....something that fits better for Christmas, Easter and other big occasions. We've looked at...Nick Baty's Warrington (as we use the Eucharistic acclamations from that setting) I'll probably be censured for this, but you might like to try Gloria Santa Klaus from the same stable. h...

Re: Offertory hymns

PS. Can we save this item until the Presentation of Gifts, rather than ploughing through it during the collection? (Although that's exactly what I did this morning! :? )

Re: Offertory hymns

That being so, the Song during the Presentation of the Gifts is like a kind of hinge, joining the two Tables together. It' also the third of the four processions during Mass and, as the other three all take their theme from the Gospel, so should the Presentation of Gifts. I like Southern Comfort's ...

Getting folk to pick up a hymn book, open it at the right page at the right time and join in is tricky enough without randomising which verses are going to be used.
Totally agree. One of the many reasons we never use hymn books.

Can you get through the whole thing before the priest is ready to carry on with the liturgy...
But why would you want to? Just select the verses/section which (1) best fit the feast and (2) are the right length for the job.

Re: Mass translation may be revised?

...nor does Latin liturgy automatically mean our worship is closed. Last time I responded on here I was immediately censored but, sorry Tom, yes it does. I don't speak Latin. So Latin worship is closed to me. But I'm an old git these days.... Not sure I have the desire to learn all these new-fangle...

Re: The 'New' Translation - your recommended music settings

I will probably be censored for going off-topic but we haven't used hymn books for many years as they are so limiting. We produce a service sheet each week which contains everything the assembly needs including Gloria, psalm refrain, Eucharistic acclamations, communion song etc. Also, if we tried to...

Re: Year of Faith - Did it help increase numbers in your par

Nick Baty's "Warrington Gloria" is more guitar friendly and has no cantor!
Am I allowed to say that? :lol:

Re: Responses to the Prayer of the Faithful

We have groups of prayers (church, world, etc) with the refrain at the end of each group.

Re: Responses to the Prayer of the Faithful

We sing a refrain to the intercessions on those days when the Gospel is about asking something of the Lord. On Good Friday we sing "O, Lord hear us, Jesus Saviour of the world" – Chris Walker with one letter changed!
