Re: First communion music

My ex parish used to do the prep and keep a note of who attended as well - at least the families came to Mass for that preparation time. I have accidentally been to two HC Masses the last two weeks. In different churches. The first was OK ish and not hi jacked too badly - just seemed a normal kind o...

Re: I enjoyed that!

Oh that's 'cos you're Catholic.
You feel guilty for enjoying yourself, or that others should so so, if they too, enjoyed themselves. :twisted:

Re: Prof Eamon Duffy on liturgical music

Sorry I focussed on those terms Particpation and Performance ... I think those that argue against more simple modern contemporary hymns are so longing for pre Vatican 2 Liturgy........... Musicum Sacram has only the term Participation in it. We should really only debate around that document rather t...

Re: Prof Eamon Duffy on liturgical music

.....I'm sure that participatory music can and should be excellent Oops, but examples are very few and far between....... we probably need to ditch these terms of "participatory" and "performance" because it is immediately obvious that "performance" music it not OK, because we are definining it as n...

Re: Prof Eamon Duffy on liturgical music

and that it was better that there should be participatory music than that there should be excellent music......

And does it therefore follow that participatory music cannot also be excellent?

Re: International Hymn Choices

Those are good tunes. People would be compelled to join in or to listen. Lord of the Dance is so awkward - I heard it sung in public in a folk club a lot of years ago by an incompetent group who were booed out of the building and that has always stayed in my memory. In Sydney Carter's Obituary is st...

Re: You can't please all the people all of the time

Yes that is true we don't thank the altar servers etc ect or maybe just on high days and holidays. It tends to be thought that doing that kind of service is a duty and priveledge. Maybe I can't spell priveledge - must find another word, it doesn't look right. Honour. But then again, such persons are...

Re: You can't please all the people all of the time

We have smilies and they are a similar thing. So what is that then? You will carry some clout if you are male/ or have a moustache? Thought so. Also, I always thought there was a bit of "You're not from round 'ere, are you?" going on in my case. So woman might be discriminated against in t...

Re: You can't please all the people all of the time

I suppose too, this links up with something I was pondering on just recently. I was thinking how odd it was when I was in post, so to speak, that some people ie the HT from the school, various VIPs of the Diocese or other powers that be, never acknowledged me with ordinary greetings or those other s...

Re: You can't please all the people all of the time

Oh I get it. This is where OFSTED expects that all children will exceed expectations and therefore should be expected to do so therefore changing those expectations and as such is connected to the concept that all achievement will be above average. So if a musician provides according to expectations...
