The Revised English Mass Settings

Hi there GII, last saturday we began our journey of learning the English and Latin chant for the revised mass settings.

Here’s a very useful resource that has the correct pronunciation with the tune and lyrics all in one video [I will put the Lord’s Prayer, Pater Noster] first:

http://vimeo.com/16567857

Please take a listen through and begin to learn!

Every Catholic in Singapore will be issued a missal that contains all the changes and tunes, you may also access a pdf version of the mass settings here –  http://www.musicasacra.com/pdf/ICELchants_Colloquium.pdf

 

Do take note that there can be various forms for e.g. the penitential act, gloria intonations (for various occasions), the credo, eucharistic prayer, concluding rites, dismissal – we are encouraged to begin to learn and know all of them as a base… so that wherever we go in Singapore and in English speaking countries – the tune and response is one and the same. These settings do not exclude the possibility of new or other tunes, but are a basic requirement for all Catholics – treat it like our ABCs, a basic building block of our Catholic liturgy.

 

Here are more videos for us to listen to and learn from, the list is not exhaustive, but a good place for all of us to start from [you will find some of the tunes already very familiar]:
