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.

Concelebrated Mass (GIRM #218) — Eucharistic Prayer

… It is a praiseworthy practice for the parts that are to be said by all the concelebrants together and for which musical notation is provided in the Missal to be sung.

Commentary: Seminaries should teach priests their musical parts of the Mass, and should train them to sing what is theirs. Singing is part of the celebrant's role — like preaching — and should be expected of him. Goodness knows, singing is "expected" of the congregation. "Nerves" or "my lousy voice" are not excuses. Priests not totally "comfortable" with public speaking learn to deal with the "thorn" of delivering a homily. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to advocating always singing the dialogues and presidential prayers (although there are some priests and communities who do). Using these sung parts on occasion highlights important liturgical days. Our liturgical year risks becoming a flat, lifeless desert rather than a contoured, living landscape, if Pentecost is just like the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time (but for red clothes).
