(back) Subject: use of the organ during Lent in Roman Catholic churches From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Thu, 11 Mar 2004 10:35:00 -0800   "The organ may be played in a subdued tone to accompany the singing ONLY, and must cease when the singing ceases, except on the 4th Sunday of Lent."   That Decree of the Sacred Congregation of Rites has never been rescinded. I can't get to my Vatican II documents in Latin at the moment, but if I'm not mistaken, it was repeated again in them.   The ONLY change from ROME is that the organ is now allowed TO ACCOMPANY THE SINGING *ONLY* throughout the Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil up to the Gloria).   We have a food fight over this practically ever year (grin), both here and on Anglican-Music.   I (in company with most conservative RCs, and anglo-catholics who pay attention to Rome regarding liturgy and music) have always taken that to mean "no preludes, interludes, offertories, communions, or postludes", though admittedly it could be argued that preludes and postludes ARE *outside* the Mass itself.   *I* think preludes and postludes violate the SPIRIT of the Decree, if not the letter.   Since I've always had good choirs, the rest didn't matter ... we sang long polyphonic settings of the Offertory Verse, and a long motet after the Communion Verse, so organ music wasn't needed. We often sang a motet after Mass in lieu of a postlude.   That rule was in effect and still observed in France as late as the 1930s, and is STILL observed in Spain, Portugal, and (I believe) Italy, at least.   If you look at Tournemire's L'Orgue Mystique, he only sets the 3rd Sunday of Advent and the 4th Sunday of Lent ... those being Gaudete Sunday and Laetare Sunday, respectively.   Yes, Dupre wrote the Stations of the Cross, and Tournemire wrote the Seven Last Words (is it?), but neither of those would have been played at MASS. The Stations were played at the Stations SERVICE; the Seven Last Words ... hmmm ... I don't know if they were played at Tre Ore on Good Friday or not ... in my experience, the organ was always silent for EVERYTHING after the Gloria of Maundy Thursday -- for Mass, for Stations, for Tre Ore, for Tenebrae, for the liturgies.   Most anglo-catholic churches have MAYBE a quiet prelude and no postlude; some organists don't use the reeds or the mixtures during Lent.   In any case, SOMETHING should be done to set the season apart.   Cheers,   Bud   IF the silence of the organ is EXPLAINED to the congregation, I find it REALLY points up the Easter Vigil when it comes back at the Gloria in excelsis.   At Old St. Mary's RC in Cincinnati, the organ was ENTIRELY silent from Ash Wednesday until the Gloria of Easter Vigil, and the effect was ELECTRIFYING. Meantime, the choir got to sing Vittoria, Palestrina, etc. to their heart's content (chuckle).

It was silent from the end of the Gloria on Maundy Thursday until the beginning of the Gloria at the Easter Vigil. It most assuredly was NOT silent on Easter DAY (Sunday) (chuckle).   Desiree, here's something you need to know about American Roman Catholicism: the rebellion in the 1960s after Vatican II was almost TOTAL, but PARTICULARLY among the PRIESTS. They don't KNOW (or CLAIM they don't know) ANY of this. They behave as if the RC Church didn't EXIST before Advent Sunday of 1964.   If you read the conciliar documents, of course, you will find that isn't the case.   I personally am more interested in what ROME says about liturgy and music than I am about what the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, an individual bishop, or still less an individual priest has to say about the subject.   Fidelity to ROME is the litmus test for a Roman Catholic, is it not?   Cheers,   Bud     All during Lent, the organ can > play as possible. > But I am open to learning history. > Oh...Bud wrote that email. > :P (Desiree' pokes tongue out) > > > > > From Desiree' > T.

It was pretty much a toss-up.   It's a great shame that Gamble Hinged Music Co. did away with their "gambleizing" service.

I have the Pachelbel Magnificat fugues = in a Dover edition.   I find that these editions are really not suitable for playing. Not only = do they refuse to lay flat, the paper disintegrates when trying to erase = pencil marks. I have taken to making photocopies of pieces I want to = play, and using those.   The Dover editions are themselves photocopies of older editions now out of = copyright; the Magnificat fugues being a knockoff of the Barenreiter = edition from the early 1900s. I find them a little difficult to read = since they are on only two staves and the assignment of voices to hands = and feet is left to the performer.   I fingered one of the fugues for manuals and have recently submitted it to = Mutopia, from which it should be available shortly.   Steve   > Dover have collections with a lot of bang for the buck > You might not like the binding >
