commisioning

On no I just lost my post! Good thing cos it was very waffly. Apologies for some tangling of the thread. I think that there are some very good reasons why some musicians.organists/directors/liturgists and choirs should be formally and commonly commissioned which are around having a contract and prom...

thread

Hi my thank you would be for the congregation to join in the singing with a bit of wellie instead of pretending to sing with the book in front of them a la Catholic. There is nothing lifts me as much as hearing everyone singing with heart. Also I then know which verse I am on. I sometimes wonder if ...

harvest festival

Hello Well we had two in the end! All due to a mix up and a muddle but just as well as we did not get the water boiled for the Fair Trade tea the first time round. We did sing "Oh Lord all the World Belongs to You" with a bit of wellie which was good. So then we ran again this last Sunday with some ...

diocesan stuff

Hi Organist I used to go to school opposite Southwark Cathedral! Over the road from the old Bedlam Hospital! My pal just said she went to Mass at Southwark and was surprised that they did not sing 'owt. In our diocese we have a named liturgy person. In the Directory. I have been to hear his Mass. Ve...

Great Amen

We have been banging on with the Celtic Amen since the beginning of summer. As yet I have never got to do it on the organ as I do not dare to interrupt ....... We just get to do it when we do the guitars as this gives me more chance to lead what is sung. And I usually do it all very badly. Luckily n...

harvest/ lectionary!

Thankyou Pirate For de mystifying some of the Holy books! I look at the SSG Liturgy Planner. and also the Diocesan Directory which a little while ago I thought was how you could find out in advance what to play!! Hmm. So, no wonder Father gets himself in such a muddle then. Fancy all that being ther...

Harvest Festival?

Still getting it wrong here! What part, if any, of the Mass would "Lord you have come to the Lakeside" be suitable for? The parish primary school is singing this, and ever anxious to try and please everyone, I tried to do it at today's children's Mass and someone complained. (Well they complained th...

Can anyone in cyber space explain what a common psalm is? And why are they used?

Thanks

Edinburgh

Hey

Was any one else there on Saturday!

It was a wonderful day but I am just squashed flat now especially my feet.
And I have missed Mass at my church today but I am sure they did fine.

well no one said it would be easy

Sorry Think it may be me mixing up the threads. Just got over excited by hearing others with similar problems and issues of the old and new repertoire. Not very reasoned debate. Sos. Will definitely come to next year's summer school. but am already booked this year for a hol. in Devon. Anything else...

Well no one said it would be easy....

Just a quick (long) reply to Sid (cannot find his/her post about fluff, may have got the wrong thread) About old V. new music. It's very hard to find out what is new music. I do not want to bring in any thing which is not very mainstream or orthodox or good aesthetically. People should be able to go...

dear Crumhorn My heart goes out to you, for we are in similar but not same battle. When I first read your post i thought you were t'other side of our battle on line and i had a little panic attack of my own. We have probs over choice of music (control battle i think) about power really isn't it? Per...

Mass setting by Gordon Rock/other Masses

Thanks to all for your encouragement. I'm thinking about what to do to make the music better. We sing the mass on Sunday from the HON; the American Mass or the Israeli Mass and the Our Father are known but we only know the Clapping Gloria in the Celebration H. for All (which was introduced through o...

thank heavens for this forum:much help needed!

I have not had time to read all posts although many so far have helped. Where were you when I needed you ?- at Easter I had major stress (which I don't need at church, I can get than at work quite easily) - and still have music in a mess in my parish. I am organist at small poor parish and also lead...
