Bringing young adults into a deeper relationship with Christ through Eucharistic worship.
Notes from last night.
Those of you who were in attendance at Spirit & Truth South last night were promised links to some documents regarding sacred music. Below I've included links to Musicam Sacram (Instruction on Music in the Liturgy) as well as the Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani (General Instruction of the Roman Missal). I've also included an example or two of what passed for liturgical movement following the council as well as some examples of sacred music for your edification. Without further adieu:
- Musicam Sacram (Instruction on Music in the Liturgy)
- General Instruction of the Roman Missal (For Dioceses in the United States). We looked at Chapter II of the Girm (The Structure of the Mass, Its Elements, and Its Parts).
And now, a few examples of what was brought into the liturgy under the "another setting" option.
1) From Ray Repp we get this beauty called "To Be Alive" from his collection: "Contemporary Ecumenical Folk Songs."
2) And now a jewel entitled "Holy, Holy" written as a setting of the Sanctus from the "Missa Bossa Nova" (yes, you read that correctly).
"And now, for something completely different."
1) This piece is a recording of Palestrina's "Agnus Dei" from the "Missa Brevis."
2) And finally, a chanted introit, "Dominus dixit ad me" taken from The Nativity of the Lord: Mass During the Night.
Remember, with the exception of the "Holy, Holy" (only because it is according to the old translation), all of these have been used in liturgy. For better or for worse? You decide.
