Ordinary Form Requiem as it should be for the Ordinary Form and modeled by Pope Francis whose liturgical style is very stoic or sober, to say the least, almost lethargic.
I just found out today that our cathedral in Savannah has strict guidelines for chants during Requiem Masses there. The Propers are chanted and what version of the parts of the Mass will be used is determined by the music director. The music director only allows certain hymns to be added to the propers and his decision is final (of course this is delegated to him by the rector whose decision is final.)
As in my parish, the proper "Chant of Farewell" at the Commendation is chanted and "May the Angels lead you into paradise" is the recessional in Latin or a vernacular version. No additional hymns at these prescribed points.
I am wondering how many of you have parishes with strict guidelines for chants during Requiems. Or does anything go?
