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.

Choice of the Mass and its Parts (GIRM #366-367)

It is not permitted to substitute other chants for those found in the Order of Mass, for example, at the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).

In choosing the chants between the readings, as well as the chants at the Entrance, at the Offertory, and at Communion, the norms laid down in their proper places are to be observed (cf. #40-41, 47-48, 61-64, 74, 86-88).

Commentary: Lest it go unheeded, the GIRM states once again, and very clearly, that composers may not make up paraphrases of liturgical texts. How vain we are to think we can improve on the collective wisdom of the Church! One may not agree with the history or the reality of the current translations, yet it is not our prerogative to "fix" them. If further changes are in the best interest of the liturgy, the Church will be led that way and adaptations will be made. In the meantime... holy patience, please!
