isn't it important to confine oneself to the hats that suit? It is more important to listen to which house the hat is telling you to be in... the hat is always right! mcb is correct: If we don't step outside our comfort zone, if we don't do the jobs that need doing rather than what suits us, we wil...

The Telegraph article refers to "Papa Wojtyla".

Does that mean the Roman Church is now governed by Papa Razzi?

New Games?

Whilst there is a lot to be said for maintaining tradition, it's often been said that the Church should get with the times. Indeed, the spirit of change the started with the Second vatican Council, is still effective today; but it hasn't touched the way in which the Church elects her pope. Perhaps t...

Re: Where's all the good stuff?

Yes, let's have beautiful music that is both interesting for choir and enjoyable for congregation. Looking at Gabriel's post, the answer to mcb's question ("where are these musical settings?") would often appear to be "unpublished, or out of print" - is there anything SSG can do to remedy this? I t...

something worthy of the angelic chorus... But we cannot know what is worthy and what isn't. We all know that beauty is in the eye (or, in this case, the ear) of the beholder. Angels might sing "Holy, holy, holy Lord" in the style of Bach; they might sing it in the style of Schoenburg; they might ju...

I can quite honestly say that I have never stood in any cathedral choir stall and sung these words, convicted or not!

In short, No. This year we get up to Sunday 5 in OT before Ash Wednesday and resume towards the end of May with Sunday 9 in OT (yes, I know that OT restarts after Easter in Week 7 this year, but Pentecost and Trinity take precedence). Next year, with Easter some 3 weeks later, we get to Sunday 8 and...

⋅  It never ceases to amaze me, when I suggest a piece which I have known for years and years, and it is thought of as 'new'. However, this need not be restricted to Inwood/Farrell/Tamblyn/Walker/Walsh - I once launched into "O Thou, who at thy eucharist dist pray" (Gibbons) and was asked...

Gwyn, these were all published as octavos through Clifton Music, on behalf of SSG. If there are still copies left, you would be able to get them through LMR (0117) 924 1311. (Decani will only order copies from there anyway.) Is "Ours were the sufferings" not in Laudate , or Celebration Hymnal for Ev...

It is aimed at organist/cantor/choral led liturgy, not ensembles. Given that a recent poll in Westminster, for the At your word, Lord programme, found that about 60:40 of the main parish masses were being celebrated with music led by a guitar, it seems a shame to limit your market! Are you going to...
