Perhaps you saw at Jerry Galipeau’s Gotta Sing, Gotta Pray that the BCDW is now permitting publishers to unveil at least some new and revised musical settings of the Order of Mass. WLP offers its sneak previews here. GIA info is here. OCP is here.
Here is an excerpt from Jerry’s report:
On Sunday, I received word from Father Rick Hilgartner of the Bishops Committee on Divine Worship (BCDW) regarding musical settings of the new translation of the Missale Romanum.The BCDW, in response to the fact that music publishers (like WLP) have been asking about ways to share our new musical settings of the new translation through music showcases (like at NPM next month in Detroit) as well as through the world wide web, has allowed the following:
1. They are “happy to allow some limited presentation of preview copies of selections from the Order of Mass.”
2. Publishers can not take orders for new products until the final text of the Missal has been issued.
3. Publishers must make clear that these musical settings are for preview only and are not yet approved for liturgical use.
4. Publishers may not share complete settings of the Mass; we can only share samples or excerpts from a variety of settings.
