10th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Year B

The Music Group is leading the music this Saturday, the 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B.

ENTRANCE:- Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
KYRIE:- Camino Mass
GLORIA:- Camino Mass
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: CJM
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:- No 1
PRESENTATION OF THE GIFTS:- One bread, one body
SANCTUS:- Mass of St Philip Howard
AGNUS DEI:- Mass of St Philip Howard
COMMUNION:- Lead me Lord
RECESSIONAL:- He who would valiant be 'gainst all disaster.


We often use this CJM setting of the Psalm as a Communion Processional, so it's nice to use it as was originally intended.  We do, however, use an adapted version of what was composed.  The original has alternate verse lines sung and spoken; but I adapted this so that it is all sung by two voices taking alternate lines.

You can hear the original version here - the harmonisation in the response is beautiful.

The Most Holy Trinity - Year B

The Vigil Music Group will be leading the music next Saturday - the Vigil of The Most Holy Trinity.  It is the first time that our group has played at this Mass - we usually play the Mass of Pentecost on the preceding weekend.  So we will be able to make use of some music that we are rarely in a position to do so.

But, we can't be too adventurous as we are also introducing the Kyrie and Gloria to a new Mass setting.

ENTRANCE:- Father, Lord of all creation.
KYRIE:-  The Camino Mass. GLORIA:-  The Camino Mass. PSALM:-  "Sing the Psalms Simply" (J. Ainslie) GOSPEL ACCLAMTION:-  6 PRESENTATION OF THE GIFTS:-  Abba, Abba Father. SANCTUS:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. AGNUS DEI:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. COMMUNION:-  Jesus, lead us to the Father. RECESSIONAL:-  I bind unto myself today.

7th Sunday of Easter - Year B

Several of our group went to Coventry last Saturday to a "Spring Gathering", organised by the Society of St Gregory, where we explored "what makes good liturgy".  It was an informative and rewarding day and we brought back plenty of food for thought for our own ministry in Glossop.

So, after missing a week in our usual fortnightly rota, we resume our music ministry this coming Saturday, the Vigil of the 7th Sunday of Easter.

ENTRANCE:-  We come to share our story/Song of the Body of Christ. KYRIE:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. GLORIA:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. PSALM:-  "Sing the Psalms Simply" (J. Ainslie) GOSPEL ACCLAMTION:-  9 PRESENTATION OF THE GIFTS:-  Majesty, worship his majesty. SANCTUS:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. AGNUS DEI:-  Mass of St Philip Howard. COMMUNION:-  There is one thing I ask of the Lord. RECESSIONAL:-  Alleluia, sing to Jesus.

Welcome

Hello and welcome to this new blog.  It is for members and friends (and those who are just curious) of the music ministry group that leads the music at the Vigil Mass at All Saints RC Church in Glossop, Derbyshire, England.
In this blog I will detail the music that we play and occasionally offer some thoughts and reflections.  There is also the possibility for you to make comment or offer feedback - please do feel free to do so.
This replaces an already-existing page on Facebook which I'm leaving due to recent adverse press.
If you access the menu (top left hamburger) you will be able to follow the blog and/or sign up for email notifications.
As you will notice in the "Who am I?" section, I have another blog, "Grassroots Liturgist" where I offer more detailed thoughts as well as practical suggestions for those involved in similar music ministry groups.
