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 Arrangement of the Church (GIRM #313)
The organ and other lawfully approved musical instruments should be placed in a suitable place so that they can sustain the singing of both the choir and the people and be heard with ease by everybody if they are played alone.
It is appropriate that before being put into liturgical use, the organ be blessed according to the rite described in the Roman Ritual.
In Advent the use of the organ and other musical instruments should be marked by a moderation suited to the character of this time of year, without expressing in anticipation the full joy of the Nativity of the Lord.
In Lent the playing of the organ and musical instruments is allowed only to support the singing. Exceptions, however, are Laetare Sunday (Fourth Sunday of Lent), Solemnities, and Feasts.
This section brings together some clear rubrics from the Ceremonial of Bishops (1989).
The two penitential (violet) seasons require special consideration for organ and other instrumental music.
During Advent, the organ should be played as a solo instrument (preludes, offertories, communions, postludes) with moderation (volume, repertoire), so as not to overshadow Christmastide.
During Lent, the organ should not be heard at all, except when used to accompany singing (choir, cantor, congregation) or on Laetare Sunday, when the extreme penitential mood is lightened, or on feasts and solemnities.
The rubric does not state this explicitly, but one might infer that during the festive seasons of Christmastide and Eastertide, one might play more robust and joyful organ music, to set these seasons apart from Ordinary Time. Remember, contours (highs and lows) is the goal for music during the liturgical year.
