    Venting....
    Dont know, maybe a Byzantine parish for Thursday.
    I will be reading on Good Friday. I imagine we will sing Were You There? and God Bless America.
    Probably piano accompaniment because organ is discouaged at that time, right?
    Looking for a Vigil, or as a last resort, Jamesons or Tullamore for Saturday.

    It is one hymn. Tantum begins verse 4.

    Well, I wouldn't call him an idiot. I did double-check with him yesterday, and I showed him in Today's Missal where the hymn is as you describe. The problem is, we've done things backasswards so many times at the behest of a multitude of short-term pastors that my learning curve is huuuuuggggge!

    Thanks - and I guess we do it his way.

    Huh? If that was to me, 1068.34 miles each way is a bit much, what with the price of gas and all....
    (My own cathedral is where the chalice was once proffered to me with the words, "The Blood of Christ and merry Christmas!" so that's not really an option either.)

    If I may ask: my pastor requested Tantum Ergo for Holy Thursday procession, followed by Pange Lingua. Isn't that backwards, and does it matter, really?

    Well, here's the thing. The verses Tantum Ergo and Genitori are traditionally (historically) sung kneeling (other hymns have kneeling verses: the first verse of both Ave Maris Stella and Veni Creator, the "O Crux Ave" verse of Vexilla Regis). So in a procession one would omit them until you reach the end when you can kneel down. This was the rubric in the 1962 Holy Week rite (from the 1962 Graduale):
    Dum fit processio Sacramenti, cantatur hymnus Pange, lingua ut infra, usque ad verba Tantum ergo; si vero opus sit, idem hymnas repetitur inde a Nobis datus.

    Cum autem ventum fuerit ad locum paratum cantatur Tantum ergo et Genitori.


    Basically saying that you sing the hymn from Pange through just before Tantum ergo, repeating back to the 2nd verse Nobis datus, as needed until you get "to the place made ready" for the Blessed Sacrament whereupon you sing the last two verses.

    The current rubrics are similar... (my emphasis) and put the two last verses of Pange Lingua only when you arrive at the place of reposition (apologies that I don't have the English handy)

    37. Oratione post Communionem dicta, sacerdos stans imponit et benedicit incensum in thuribulo et genuflexus ter incensat Ss.mum Sacramentum. Deinde, assumpto velo umerali albi coloris, surgit et accipit pyxidem et eam extremitatibus veli cooperit.

    38. Instruitur processio, qua defertur Ss.mum Sacramentum cum intorticiis et incenso per ecclesiam ad locum repositionis, paratum in aliqua ecclesiae parte vel in aliquo sacello convenienter ornato. Praecedit minister laicus cum cruce medius inter alios duos cum cereis accensis. Sequuntur alii candelas accensas gestantes. Ante sacerdotem deferentem Ss.mum Sacramentum, procedit thuriferarius cum thuribulo fumigante. Interim cantatur hymnus Pange, lingua (exclusis duabus ultimis strophis), vel alius cantus eucharisticus.

    39. Cum processio pervenerit ad locum repositionis, sacerdos, adiuvante, si opus sit, diacono, deponit pyxidem in tabernaculo, cuius porta aperta manet. Deinde, thure imposito, genuflexus Ss.mum Sacramentum incensat, dum cantatur Tantum ergo sacraméntum vel alius cantus eucharisticus. Deinde diaconus vel ipse sacerdos Sacramentum in tabernaculo reponit et portam claudit.

    40. Post aliquod tempus adorationis in silentio, sacerdos et ministri, facta genuflexione, revertuntur in sacristiam.
    That "exclusis duabus ultimis strophis" is Tantum Ergo and Genitori. So the tradition and the current rubrics are not to sing Tantum Ergo in the procession at all, but after the procession when you arrive at the place of reposition.

    I kinda like the idea of splitting a Bach Prelude and Fugue into the Prelude and Postlude of a service. Is that common?

    I'm not an organist (as most of you know). One of the things I look forward to every week is being surprised by what my accompanists have selected. My previous organist knew I had a particular fondness for English Baroque, so he would frequently lean over at one point or another and whisper something like, "I think you'll like this one today!"
    My current accompanist is a bit more in tune with pulling things together with the other music and the "themes" of the readings. I frequently find he plays things based on tunes/hymns I that I almost picked for that Sunday but didn't make the final cut.

    For a second there, I thought y'all in Sioux Falls were doing verses of Were you there interspersed with the refrains of the Popule Meus! :)
  • I believe it was Saint-Saens who said (paraphrasing):

    Fugues are the best postludes. As the voices begin to enter, the people begin to leave. When all the voices are in, all the people are out!

    But yes, I often do this split of prelude and fugue.

    Often I think the preludes work better as the postludes and it's the fugue that works better before hand.
    Thanked by 1CHGiffen
  • dhalkj

    Yes, that's often the case from a musical perspective - that way the prelude is a slow build from the fugue, and the postlude you get a bigger immediate flourish.

    I wanted to share that we are singing this setting of the Mandatum text by Luke Mayernik that I am very impressed with! I just about drove off the road when I heard it on an OCP sample CD a few years ago, and we have a strong enough choir (all volunteers) for all 8 parts this year.

    In other news, we are going a cappella Gloria to Gloria this year (not just on principle but because they can handle it!) We will sing chants from SEP, LCM, Fr. Columba Kelly and Fr. Weber (Reproaches), and polyphony from various sources new and old (Byrd, Victoria, Palestrina, but also a setting of the Anima Christi by Michael Burgo). I am pretty excited.

    Is everyone aware of the foot washing piece by Peter Latona?

    It premiered at the NPM convention last year to GREAT acclaim. This year, it is the Holy Thursday piece de jour in nearly every cathedral that posts a worship aid online.

    Beautiful piece. You can get it from GIA.

    Ally, that is breath-taking, thank you for the link.
    I was surprised by the composer referring to it as a Troparion - is that the text used by Byzantine Catholics? I've only been to Diving Liturgy on Holy Thursday once, and the washing of the feet was not done.

    My memorable Holy Thursday moment: My girls intoned the Ubi Caritas chant before the adults sang the Durufle. After the mass, one of the girls asked if they might sing the Durufle next year with the adults. Yeah, things are changing.........
