Liturgical Hints & Ideas

During Ordinary Time in Year B we will highlight passages from the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM) that pertain to music during the liturgy. The GIRM contains rubrics and instructions (some of them new) for the celebration of the Mass. The first section below is a direct quote from the English translation of the document. The second section is a commentary on the passage.

Duties and Ministries in the Mass (GIRM #102)

It is the psalmist's place to sing the Psalm or other biblical canticle to be found between the readings. To carry out this function correctly, it is necessary for the psalmist to be accomplished in the art of singing Psalms and have a facility in public speaking and elocution.

Commentary: Singing as the psalmist (cantor) at Mass is a service to the community. If the person filling this role is not qualified to lead the community in song, he should be asked to minister in other ways. A restaurant would not tolerate a bad chef; neither should a parish suffer from a harsh, distracting voice in a leadership position. Engaging a cantor because "it's good for her," or even worse, "good for her ego" is getting the server and the served backwards.
