It i strange how in the autumn from Ordinary Time through Advent and Christmas the Mass parts have a commonality and fluidity. Lent, Easter and then Ordinary Time now the changes are much more distinct and 'instant'. There was a time when the settings for the Easter season 'bled' into Trinity and beyond but now I like to give a distinct flavour to the Easter season. Th settings we began using today will see us through to the end of August. It is interesting to realise that this now the third years we have been sing ing the new translation.
The innovation and the exception to this is Credo III. I was struck when we used it at Christmas that it was not that well know, We are going to be singing it for the next 6 Sundays - from Trinity to Ss Peter & Paul. It is partly a way of marking the Year of Faith. One member of the congregation came up afterwards and described it as 'Catholic Karaoke' for a certain age group.
