Hymn List for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B
  • Hi Everyone,

    I've been thinking of starting a weekly hymn suggestion list where people from all different Catholic parishes around the country send in their weekly hymns and post them in a forum setting. I would be happy to start this tradition each week with sending out my hymn list!

    What are yours thoughts on that?? I enjoy seeing what fellow music directors use and look for new pieces I might not know.

    Processional: All Hail The Power Of Jesus' Name-#307-Heritage Hymnal
    Preparation: Christ Be Our Light-#418-Heritage Hymnal
    Mass Of Christ The Savior- (Heritage Hymnal)
    When We Eat This Bread-#53
    Amen #55
    Lamb Of God-# 56
    Communion: All Who Hunger-# 926-RitualSong
    Recessional: Praise My Soul The King Of Heaven-#684-RitualSong

    Psalm: God Has Done Great Things For Us- Marty Haugen
    Alleluia: Gregorian Chant

    I think this is a good idea but maybe it could be on a different forum or different media all together like a blog that we all have permissions for.
    I can help get it started if you would like. This web site is to promote Sacred Music and probably shouldn't be used for this sort of thing. What does everyone else feel, yay or nay?

    There's no harm in starting a thread for it here (weekly).
  • Love the idea. I go to different churches in Cleveland's western suburbs and would be happy to post what I hear (good or bad).
  • I feel like this forum is like a blog kind of thing too!

    It is good to know what others are doing. My hymn selections are printed and distributed about two months in advance, so it wouldn't be much help for planning. I could keep the list until Year B rolls around again.

    Why call it a "Hymn List" when it includes settings for the Ordinary of the Mass? Isn't it really a "Music List"?
  • What's the difference between Hymn list and Music list?

    I don't know of any difference. My list contains both.
  • Chrism,

    What do you mean Hymn List vs. Music List?? I'm confused!

    >>Sending Forth: Hit the Road, Jack. Ray Charles

    Best choice, ever.

    When I was in Middle School, our "Youth Choir" was temporarily directed by a very talented Lounge Singer With No Taste. He referred to the Recessional as either "The Goodbye Song" or "The Closing Number" and routinely programmed the sort of semi-religious "I'll Miss the Good Times We Had" kind of songs that are usually reserved for tacky graduation ceremonies.

    Here is where the road divides
    Here is where we realize
    The sculpting of the Father's great design
    Thru' time you've been a friend to me
    But time is now the enemy
    I wish we didn't have to say goodbye
    But I know the road He chose for me
    Is not the road he chose for you
    So as we chase the dreams we're after

    Pray for me and I'll pray for you
    Pray that we will keep the common ground
    Won't you pray for me and I'll pray for you
    And one day love will bring us back around again

    (Yes, that was really one we used.... unbelievable.)

    Because some people will sing the liturgy exclusively and won't program any hymns.
