Yes I have read Gordon Reynolds' book and I must seek it out again! I am sure I will enjoy the challenge of playing and conducting settings which I have often sung as a singer. One thing I am missing already is responsorial psalm settings. At the masses in other parishes we have attended so far the ...

My wife and I enjoy evensong - could it be that in heaven they use Anglican chant?

I am pleased to say I have been appointed director of music of a C of E parish with a good choir and organ and a vicar and congregation who support the music. It's 7 miles from home - not as far as Liverpool! We did attend Mass in Liverpool cathedral and thought the choir wonderful. I also played th...

music servant of liturgy

Sorry SOP I didn't answer your question. PP has been with us a year having been in the mission field for 8 years where no doubt he was treated as God. He seems to have upset just about everyone!

music servant of liturgy

Some priests continually talk of my church, my parish - they need to start listening to their people who talk of our church, our parish, even our priest. Let the people reclaim their church! :x

I am sorry to say that this particular servant of the liturgy has been dismissed by the parish priest for allegedly defying him. Completely untrue and he says he has no plans for either of the choirs. Very sad situation and judging by my correspondence an all too frequent occurrence in the church. W...

music servant of liturgy?

I was very conscious this Holy Week of the need to finish the music so that our priest can go on to the next part of the liturgy. He does seem to want to rush things and I made the point to him that I consider it very important personally and pastorally that I have time to get off the organ stool an...

Lord's prayer

When we were at the Papal audience in St Peter's square we were surprised how few around us knew the Pater noster. I think congregations should occasionally sing this setting and the English version in the missal. Most of the other settings are awful. Big parish occasions we say it.

communion

We use the Lamb of God so sing 2 verses of the Farrell or Inwood setting during the fraction then silence and then more verses at the start of the communion rite. I don't much like "twiddling in the spirit" - I prefer a proper voluntary. A hymn or motet follows. This still leaves the problem of when...

Processions

My ecumenical heart has been greatly warmed this week by agreement after years of trying for a combined procession through the streets with our local Anglican congregation on Palm Sunday. Now we only have 3 masses on Sunday morning and the children's passion presentation could not be mounted this ye...

My worst experience was when the sacristan said he would signal to me in the mirror that the bride was ready to process. I was happily playing "Greensleeves" when I saw to my horror in the mirror that the bride was already halfway up the aisle. What to do? Carry on with "Greensleeves" of course! Sol...

Christian unity week

Only 3 Catholics at the unity service I attended - our new priest, one stalwart and myself. The service was based on the material provided in the unity week booklet including some good words sung to "Auld lang syne" not a good idea! We did hear an excellent sermon in which the preacher used "You in ...
