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.

Re: Here is a cantor!

Many if not all of the other Papal Liturgies during his American visit were musically toe-curling mainly due to the over-use of cantors: * singing hymns via a microphone from the ambo even though a perfectly adequate choir is singing. * singing every single Vesper psalm verse into an ambo mic even t...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

I love the new translation (or the old translation if you're a 1970s convert from the Church in Wales). It has its flaws of course, any translation will.

And also with you - Urgh!

Re: Music Animator required

I came across an animator once in Blackpool, it seems to be a fairly pointless, purposeless activity.
