Another go at the more streamlined setting of Romans 6. Looking back to 3 years ago I then noted it was 3 years since we had begun singing new settings (so now 6). I wondered then how long we might continue with the Missal Acclamations. My ambivalence to them continues: not convinced at an aesthetic level; recognising their functional success. Or to put it aonther way - people sing them and they do suit this period when we can be down to just singer on a Sunday.
A different matter — how does this Sunday's psalm fit in the Liruegy of the Word?
