Easter Vigil

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Nope - I was in advance of you by 30 minutes (we begin that early because of the many senior citizens in the parish who are nervous about being out and about late at night. It was quite dark in church though)

I'm glad about that, Peter. I have to say it was well received and our deacon-to-be-ordained-shortly expressed an interest, as he's not a singer. Thanks again for everything.

ah, sorry to disappoint...possible confusion here. I didn't mean the plainsong proper..it's a sort of home grown effort. Basically, I don't like the effect of the communion antiphon being said (which is what they did before I started here) so now they chant it, a capella, using a variety of different sorts of chants throughout the year, mostly in harmony.

Now, I know this could most charitably be described as a cut and paste job, taking bits of different GIRM options rather than actually following any of them, and I've read everything that S.C. has said on the subject of these somewhat loose ends, but, while it's on the long term plan, I'm afraid I'm likely to continue this shocking malpractice for a year or two yet - have other fish to fry during my choir practice time.
