Universal GIRM: 393. Attento loco eminenti, quem in celebratione cantus obtinet, utpote liturgiæ pars necessaria vel integralis, Conferentiarum Episcoporum est melodias aptas approbare, præsertim pro textibus Ordinarii Missæ, pro populi responsionibus et acclamationibus, et pro peculiaribus ritibus ...

Re: PANEL decisions
