The New Translation

Singing the Mass – a new directive

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has issued a statement (access it here) which advises that as from Pentecost 2014 the only settings oof the Ordinary of the Mass (in English translation) that may be used are ones that use the current English translation.

To assist parishes, schools and other communities that are still using musical settings using former translations the Society has produced Keep Calm, a simple guide on how to proceed, and an outline of a workshop that might be used by deaneries and diocesan agencies to offer help and support.
