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.

The Different Forms of Celebrating Mass (GIRM #159) — Liturgy of the Eucharist

While the Priest is receiveing the Sacrament, the Communion Chant begins (cf #86).

Commentary: Consider this, perhaps as an ideal:

  1. The priest receives Communion; meanwhile, the cantor begins the Communion antiphon (as found in the Roman Missal or Graduale Romanum or Graduale simplex) in Latin or English, leading the people's repetition.
  2. The cantor and people alternate psalm verses and antiphon until the choir has received Communion.
  3. The choir takes over the verses, still leading the people's antiphon, as the cantor joins the Communion procession.
  4. When all have received, and the altar vessels are cared for, the music ends and all spend a few moments in silent prayer.
  5. The celebrant sings (recites) the Prayer after Communion.

This is an ideal and seems to be what the rubrics envision for the Roman Rite. The closer we come to this in our weekly celebrations, the more we can take advantage of the accumulated wisdom of the Church, and the more claim we have on being "Roman" Catholics.

And how refreshing is the new translation, Communion Chant. Somehow "Look Beyond" and "Table of Plenty" just don't seem to fit anymore.
