On Monday and Tuesday of next week, I will help facilitate a clergy convocation in the Diocese of Davenport. One of the things I have been asked to do is lead the participants through some portions of Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship, especially those areas that pertain particularly to the celebrant.
Here are two of the sections I will be sharing:
Some of what is contained in these two paragraphs is fairly obvious, such as the fact that the priest should not be singing the congregation's responses to the dialogues. I must admit, however, that I have been in places where the priest forgets to turn off his wireless microphone and his own singing voice dominates the singing of the congregation.
Just thought I'd share those musings as I continue to prepare for next week.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
