    We still do the simple 4-square hymn masses but I am ecouraged that my song choices somewhat reflect in spirit and theology the beautiful pieces of these larger Cathedrals and Basilicas.

    Entrance Hymn: Jerusalem, My Happy Home (LAND OF REST), specific verses
    Psalm: Psalm 137 by Owen Alstott (R&A)
    Gospel Acclamation also by Own Alstott (R&A)
    Offertory: Only This I Want - Dan Schutte (a song from the Gather hymnal we have that isn't trite, and has good, sound theology (verses are paraphrased verses from Phillipians)
    Mass of Grace (locally composed) Gordon Proulx
    Agnus Dei: XVIII
    Commuion: I am the Bread of Life (Toolan)
    Silent Recessional (per pastor)

    I also used "The King of Love My Shepherd Is." As a recessional hymn do you sing all the verses? To me it seems odd to sing less than the whole psalm. We used it for the communion hymn and sang all the verses.
  • At St. Michael's Cathedral Basilica, we usually sing all verses, unless otherwise specified.

    @Casavant Organist: Commendable selection, except for the truly horrible Goodall selection. A perfect example of "sacred" music drawn from secular tradition, associated inextricably with secular culture, now doing double duty in a place of worship.

    Prelude: Brahms - Herzlich tut mich verlangen, Op. 122 No. 10
    T. L. de Victoria - Super flumina Babylonis à 8
    Opening: I want to walk as a child of the light, WC 819 (HOUSTON)
    Kyrie: ICEL Chant Mass
    Offertory: God of day and God of darkness, CBW 477 (BEACH SPRING)
    Communion: English Communion antiphon for Lent IV composed by the organist
    Attende Domine (Latin refrain, English verses)
    Henry Ley - God so loved the world (SO superior to the Stainer)
    Postlude: J. S. Bach - O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde Groß, BWV 622
  • As you know, these selections are not my choices. I only sing the selections. I can't stand the Goodall either.

    At my parish, cathechumens leave of their own accord.

    Ours do leave, when rites and readings pertaining to them occur during a morning mass. Normally, they all go to the evening mass. This year, we have no candidates for baptism or confirmation at Easter Vigil. A big event was held a couple of months ago where all were baptized and/or confirmed, leaving none for Easter Vigil. Looking forward to a shorter Vigil this year.

    Advocatus -

    The Second Scrutiny of the Elect occurred during this Mass, after which the Elect were dismissed. We currently do not have any catechumens who have not been elected for Baptism.

    At our church they do dismiss the catechumens and they exit through the sacristy and go to the rectory with a deacon for further instruction in the Faith. I like the symbolism it affords.

    Things are a bit wonky this year in East TN. The bishop has decreed that all confirmations in the diocese will be done at the new cathedral this year. Next year, the confirmations return to the parishes. We have no catechumens at this time.
