Re: Noises off

Dear nazard, I tried putting up a polite notice pointing out that playing the organ requires complete concentration. It got taken down by the priest in charge but I think he did speak to the offenders privately i.e. the small choir. They seem to have been quiet since! This doesn't stop the same peop...

Re: Noises off

This is an increasing problem. One of the reasons for leaving my present post is inconsiderate behaviour while playing. The worst was laughter very near to me in the choir loft on Remembrance Sunday. I find playing on this day demanding as I remember all those who lost their lives and this was just ...

Saturday evening Masses

I wonder why so few Masses have any singing. At the most there might be a sung Alleluia with spoken verse and a sung Doxology. Some churches sing hymns unaccompanied by why no attempt at the simple chant Mass settings in the Missal? Recent horrors I have endured a recording of Silent night after com...

Re: Holy Week must haves

My Holy Week is divided between Westminster cathedral which is always splendid and a small Anglo-Catholic church with a choir of 3 or 4 if you are lucky. However we will be singing the psalms on Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil - the rest is good solid NEH hymnody and the Murray setting whi...

Preparation of the Gifts

At Mass last night (my 3rd Eucharist of the weekend - it was for deceased Catenians and relatives) the priest (very charming) who is "Conservative" and has caused people to leave the parish, told us at the Offertory that we should be offering our prayers and concerns with the gifts. Surely...
