Welcome to this very abbreviated version of "New Translation Thursday."
There have been some great comments posted recently, comments from musicians like Kevin Keil. These musicians are beginning to implement the new texts, set to new and revised musical settings, now, in order to prepare their communities gradually for the upcoming change. I found Kevin's comments quite interesting:
"With all the variations of texts currently used in our present repertoire, no one noticed that it was a new translation; just another variation of the Gloria. Interesting."
As I have said before, I think the transition will be the easiest for the people in the pews; much more challenging for bishops and priests.
Feel free to weigh in on these issues.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
