On Sunday we sang the Lord’s Prayer, then the responses, and then the Venite (Psalm 95). The responses and Psalm were plainchant, and the people really enjoyed doing it – as much as I did leading them. Augustine said that he who sings to God has prayed twice, or something similar. It certainly felt good.
This was our first time singing responses. Each week we learn to sing another part of the liturgy. So far we have been learning the Matins, or, Morning Prayer, and very soon, perhaps next week, we will begin learning to sing the Communion.
Our musical and liturgical Reformation continues. Aluta continua.
