It’s been eight months since new and revised Mass settings have come into use. How is it going?
Pray Tell wants to hear about your experiences. Please report in, everyone:
* What new settings have you used, and how have they gone?
*What revised settings have you used, and how have they gone?
*What strategies for implementing new music have worked best?
*Have your thoughts changed about the usefulness of revised (“retro-fitted”) settings compared to entirely new settings?
*What input would you give to publishers about their resources?
Pray Tell friend Michael Silhavy hopes to make use of your input in his presentation on Mass settings at this year’s CCMLA – the Collegeville Conference on Music, Liturgy, and the Arts, June 18-21.
CCMLA looks to be a great conference this year, by the way. Here’s the title and description:
“For You and For Many: Unity Across Generations, Cultures, and Worship Styles”
Fifty years after the opening of the Second Vatican Council in 1962 and in our first year implementing the new English missal, the Collegeville Conference on Music, Liturgy and the Arts looks at cultural diversity (how do we include ‘the other’?), generational diversity (where are the youth?), liturgical diversity (are we going backward or forward?), and diversity in architectural and musical styles. How is the Holy Spirit holding “the many” of us together?
Looking forward to the reports on your experience with Mass settings.
