THE SUNG MASS IN THE ORDINARY FORM
At Saint Joseph Church, our 9:30 AM and 12:10 PM Masses are sung, meaning we sing almost everything. The cantor chants the introit after the Processional hymn and also the Offertory and Communion Antiphons.
The priest sings the "Sign of the Cross" and all the greetings and the people respond. The Penitential rite is sung as is the Gloria, Sanctus, Mystery of Faith, Great Amen, Pater Noster, Agnus Dei.
We don't sing, though the Credo. But that will change beginning next year for our choir Mass at 9:30 AM.
This is the setting we will sing:

If we must do it in the vernacular at least it will be a good translation.
Father, why is your Pascal Candle lit?
The picture is an archival one from last Easter season.
You must have received permission to use the new translations. I wish our diocese would do the same. Congratulations. I'm envious of your liturgies. Thank you for your efforts to restore sacredness and beauty to the Mass.
How wonderful! I hope your parishioners know how blessed they are both by the beauty of the Mass as it is celebrated @ St. Joseph's, but also by the faithfulness of their Priest! -pgal
This is very impressive. I would love to see our parish try this sort of thing.
"I hope your parishioners know how blessed they are both by the beauty of the Mass as it is celebrated @ St. Joseph's, but also by the faithfulness of their Priest!"
We certainly DO!!
Where is this available? Can it be acquired with keyboard accompany?
It's from the ICEL website, gregorian chant I english which will be included in all new hymnals and also in the Roman Missal.
Well you asked....
What do I think? There was this hope that the when the revised English translation came into in effect later this year there would be peeling back of the sung Latin.
But I guess not. Don't know what I'll do other than keep attending Mass and praying and singing as best I can and hope "it takes".
How singable is the Credo III?
Is it easier to sing than the Kyrie Eleison now being sung for Lent? The ending of the last verse of the Kyrie loses a lot of folks.
Well you asked...
Credo, sung in Latin, by all the Congregation always gives me a chill when I hear it. It is beautiful and moving every time. I always feel the unity in it.
Anon at 9:09 I'm afraid you lost me when you said that with the revised English translation there would be a rolling back of the Sung Latin...What Fr. posted was in English.
And the Kyrie isn't sung in Latin it's Greek.
