The pedal will sound at an octave below written. However, do b...

Christmas Week suggestions

Christmas Masses - I usually play carols not being used during the service - verses on different registration, soloing out the tune, etc. Alternatively, there is something for everyone in "40 Christmas Preludes" from the Mayhew stable. Holy Family: As we are still in the Christmas Octave, ...

Thanks for posing the question whether incidental music has relavance and please excuse the length of this reply. Silence indeed has its place in every Mass and the GIRM details times when there should be a "sacred silence." Everybody should naturally observe these. Music can also greatly ...

I was very interested in the comments posted: 1) Thanks for the reminders about the GIRM requirements at Advent and Lent. Although my Flute Chorus is 8,4,22/3,2,11/3 the congregation lacks confidence and it won't support it. Mixtures and Crumhorn will stay firmly in for Advent 2) Musicus: Helmsley a...

Incidental Music for Mass

Many Sunday organists are looking for incidental music repertoire that is not too demanding to play. Here is a list of what I shall be playing - before Mass, during Communion and Recessional. About half these pieces are Manuals only. Most are easy (some very easy). There is a sprinkling of pieces th...

Reginald, thanks for the translation and for the time you would have spent on it. It'll be interesting to see where we go from here - with possibly two differing rites in the same deanery or even the same parish. From what I understand, the Holy Father wishes the liturgy to act as an agent of evange...

Thanks for the reminders about Sea Sunday folks - I don't always check the Directory for special Sundays and often miss this sort of thing - mea culpa. Here goes for this evening: Entry: O Worship The King Alleluia (sung, Plainsong) verse (said) Offertory: Peace Perfect Peace (Mayhew) Holy Holy, Acc...

The church I attended, close to where I work did this: Kyrie - Polyphonic (Choir) Gloria - De Angelis (Choir - I think the organist was trying to do this antiphonally with choir alternating with congregation but it didn't work. Psalm: Motet "Tu es Petrus" Alleluia - the familiar plainsong ...

Re: Hymn choices

Presbyter wrote "Why do you feel you need four hymns when GIRM and CTM suggest three? Just a question - not a criticism. I suppose most people still do a four-hymn sandwich." Our Liturgy Committee decided to stick with 4 hymns (we do sing other parts of the Mass as well). It is an English ...
