  • CatholicZ09,

    I'm EF, so our calendar has 24th and Last Sunday after Pentecost, but I have a question for you:

    Did you choose the diversity of musical styles on purpose or by accident?

    Liam, seems we were on the same page, lol.
  • Chris, these are the selections at the Cathedral parish this weekend, so not my own. I realize that wasn’t clear when I said “Here’s what we’re doing.” I often attend Mass at the Cathedral. Love the music they do.
  • Z09,

    Could you redirect my question, then, to address it thusly: "When the choir master (or whoever's in charge) chose this music, was the diversity of genres intentional or accidental?" Serviam, you see, planned more hymns because he was using a polyphonic ordinary, so the "balance" was intentional.

    Update: One of the challenges of being a small choir with one or two people per part: We unfortunately had to forego the Haydn this morning because the soprano section had laryngitis; so we just did Mass VIII. Everything else was as scheduled, minus descants.

    We're hoping to be able to do the Haydn later, possibly on Epiphany.
  • I won't reveal our church's name and location right now given that I may be asking for advice soon and will need to remain somewhat anonymous, but here's what we did with my seven-piece male choir:
    Introit: Dignus est Agnus (GR)
    Gloria/Agnus: Missa O Quam Gloriosum - Victoria
    Offertory: Ecce Vicit Leo - Peter Philips (organ plays choir 2)
    Communion: O King All Glorious - Willan
    Concluding: Toccata - Vierne
