A tune by any other name

As an ex-Anglican, I refer to hymn TUNES - eg; what TUNE shall we use for "Praise to the Holiest"? Since becoming a Catholic, lifelong Catholics (round here anyyay) seem to refer to hymn tunes as "AIRS". Yes, I do know what Air means in this context; I just wonder why the term is used by Catholics ...

Sunday Evening Prayer

Please can this not become a Mayhew-bashing thread? I have no axe to grind, but my organ repertoire has been enriched by KM's publications, as has my congregation's repertoire. As with any catalogue, you pick and choose. I have never used the Alan Rees, but I have a copy. For a parish with vision, a...

The point to which this comment applied seems to have disappeared from the forum........in which case, admin, mine could go too.

Also, i am sre there was a new post here last night (Sun 7 Nov) which has gone now - or was I dreaming?

Paul Inwood in The Tablet

During this morning's homily (I'd heard it twice already!) I read an article in The Tablet on parish music by Paul Inwood. (I think it was an early October edition) While it didn't, at least to me, say anything radically new, it gave a good concise history of liturgical music up to the prtesent day,...

Announcing musical items

Our previous pp announced everything - hymns, sung Ordinaries etc, sometimes explaining why and quoting the 'Council documents. Our present PP doesn't - and participation has dropped. I know the Mass "flows" better without announcement, but I would sacrifice flow for participation any day. (Although...

Music/liturgy in crematoria

Thanks for posts. This could easily become a "things that happened.." topic, but what I really hope to get addressed is the recorded music thing. I play at a crem 1 day a week - in theory. I am lucky if I get to play 1 full service (ie prelude, hymn(s), postlude. There is very often a cd at the begi...

DIG DEEP!

I have noticed for some time that new postings tend to be in the top ten or so topics of page 1 of the forum. Does that mean:

a) Every topic below that is exhausted, or

b) No one can be bothered to scroll down?

Music/liturgy in crematoria

Is anyone else involved full, part time, or occasionally as a crematorium organist, or chaplain?

If so, i would like to start a thread relevant to us, but with wider liturgical implications.

PAYMENT?

Totally off-topic but in reply to Merseysider's query, was born at Sefton General, but moved away (with parents) at age 5. Still have relatives on the Wirral though.

PS - Anyone know what became of "Andrew" who posted in the forum for a short and never-to-be-forgotten while?

PAYMENT?

I wasn't in any way arguing with you're situation (fellow) Merseysider - just making an observation about mine. I am self employed, and could not undertake all my church duties if I worked a full 5-day week either.

PAYMENT

Just back from holiday. I am paid for 3 masses and choir practice each week, no pay review since 1997, and I find that in my absence my deputy organists have been paid pro-rata more than I get, PLUS they have been given diocesan mileage allowance!! (I walk to church, so don't even qualify for that!)

Why no postings?

:? Why has no-one posted anything lately?

I felt I had to sign up and ask as I enjoyed reading as a "non-participant"

Has everyone followed that Andrew and lost heart?
