Organ Music

According to De musica sacra et sacra liturgia – Instruction on Sacred Music and Sacred Liturgy (September 3, 1958) —

The playing of the organ, and all other instruments is forbidden [at Liturgies] during the following times:

Lent and Passiontide, from Ash Wednesday until the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo in the Solemn Mass of the Easter Vigil

However, the following exceptions to the rule may be made:

a) the organ may be played, and other instruments used, on holy days of obligation
b) the organ may be used on the fourth Sunday of Lent, on Thursday of Holy Week during the Mass of Chrism, and during the solemn evening Mass of the Last Supper from the beginning to the end of the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo

Throughout the Sacred Triduum, from the midnight before Holy Thursday until the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo of the Solemn Mass of the Easter Vigil, the organ shall remain completely silent, excepting the instance mentioned in paragraph 83b.

Psalm numbering is according to the Latin Vulgate Bible.
