Re: Musical Accompaniment to the Divine Office

. . . A useful tip for antiphons is to use parts 1 and 4 of a 4-line tone. That also helps the people to get familiar with the tone, and the tonality!

Excellent strategy S.C.

Re: Musical Accompaniment to the Divine Office

Hello there, DNBA, What a wonderful plan. I hope all goes well. Are you thinking of singing the psalms to simple psalm tones (see attached pdf file)? If so, then I'll be happy to email you accompaniments to a good number of these. Are you thinking of Evening Prayer (Vespers) or Night Prayer (Complin...

Re: Christmas on TV and radio

Indeedy-doody. St Chad's was a delight; Credo iii would have topped it off nicely. Never mind though, liturgically and musically stunning.

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

JW mentioned In response to alan29, I'm going to our local Baptist church tomorrow to give some free advice to someone who's learning to play. Fantastic! The alternative to organ accompanied choral music and hymnody seems to be the poor man's version of Radio 2's Sing Something Simple. We all rushed...

All Saints

Hello brethren and sistren,

What's happening with All Saints this year? Is it to be moved to the nearest Sunday, or is it to be celebrated on November 1st?

Thanks,

Gwyn.

Re: Mass for Canonisation of Mother Teresa

Was that the one piece of music that the EWTN commentators chose not to yabber continually through? I've all but given up viewing EWTN's televised liturgies since almost anything musical is treated as irrelevant and so they take the opportunity to spontaneously translate or commentate without ceasin...

Re: Cardinal Sarah

We're richly blest that we have such choice. There are places in the fallen world where Catholics would love to be able to celebrate Holy Mass without fear of persecution or even death, let alone fretting about which direction the celebrant faces. Let's not worry too much about which way the Celebra...

Re: Ernest Sands

Sad indeed.

I remember when he came to Cardiff to lead a dayschool on music in the liturgy; he was funny and informative.
He said "If God has given you a lousy voice, then make sure that He gets to hear it". :lol:

May he rest in peace.

Re: Funeral Liturgies in Theory and in Practice

The problem with eulogies during the Requiem Masses/funeral services is that they simply don't fit. Punters in the pews feel that thay must stifle their laughter at the funny bits. The wake is the place for eulogising. Just a thought.
