Re: International Declaration on Sacred Music "Cantate Domino"

So you can do it if you have a choir and cantor who can tackle it?

Re: International Declaration on Sacred Music "Cantate Domino"

IT
you describe your parish music as
"This sort of music".

What sort of music is that please?

Re: Mass translation may be revised?

This talk of re translation! It is like, we don't think we gave you the right words, last time and the time before, maybe the time before that. So. This time these are the right words. Sorry for making you say it wrong. It is like, this is the new and better curriculum, this one is better, we gave y...

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

That is good Keitha.
Here is our organ project
www.holyfamilyls12.org.uk/christianheritageOH.html

the nattering about women organists above was in connection with the idea, that pipe organs are a emblems of Patriarchal Society - it is a confusion on this thread and should be ingored.

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

Sorry for being confusing, it was very badly written - I mean if people are in a church and hear something they can identify with then that will encourage them to become more interested in church things generally like the treasury of Sacred Music. I was trying to suggest that pipe organ music and tr...

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

yes but no Organs are not dying out yet. I've played three, one from the murky past, a nice modern Malcom Spinx, and a big digital. The big digital was the best because, like a keyboard, you can diddle it down a couple of tones. Transpose at the press of a button. They all sounded pretty much the sa...

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

Sorry. Not grim. I suppose the words might be "more formal". I think we have to accept that there are other ways of celebrating the Mass which are not so formal. Like Polka Masses! It is not the restoration and maintenance of pipe organs which is a dead end. It is surrendering to the idea ...

Re: Pipe Organs and Organists - Dying out?

Not to be unkind to those who are seriously troubled by the demise of pipe organs and also capable organists - - the landscape in these parts if very different. In fact, I led the organ restoration fund in our rather poor parish - but always with the approach of " what are we doing spending all...

Re: Extraordinary Form

We were contemplating the fact that the Latin Mass requires males to do the serving etc. We have not yet mentioned that it is OK for a woman to serve if " she knows Latin" and does not move. So she can respond ( as on behalf of the congregation )- but not waltz around the altar doing moves...

Re: Extraordinary Form

I hope you are not thinking I would have any kind of informed background? Not guilty.

Not me. Just googling around. That second article is American Journalism.
What is the problem?

Re: Extraordinary Form

Perhaps these two articles available online sum up the issues and debates around female altar servers, lay ministries and women's difficulties within the Catholic church so I will try to link them thus saving anyone reading the thread from confusion. (Oo, that must be a first ) For Canon Law - Cardi...

Re: Extraordinary Form

I was reading more today. I found this "The reasons why the rubrics 'in no way contemplate the possibility of female servers' is because female servers were restricted by the 1917 Code (c. 813, §2). The 1917 Code is now completely abrogated, along with the prohibition on female altar servers, i...

Re: Extraordinary Form

Ah I googled. A little randomly perhaps. But different viewpoints came up for me to read. So. All those roles - like readers, Eucharistic Ministers and so on, are delegated to the laity by the powers of authority. Nowadays, they can be delegated to males and females. This delegation can be revoked. ...
