Choose the Settings

At the campus ministry conference last week, there was no organized liturgy to speak of. I stepped forward to lead singing the alleluia, Eucharistic Acclamations, and Fraction Rite at daily Mass. Have a guess as to what I chose. Two hint: three disparate setting, all sung with gusto.

What would you choose for eighty people, sixty of whom are undergraduate college students from around the US. Discuss, please. Predict, if you dare.

    Celtic Alleluia?
    Massive Creation?
    Agnus Dei XVIII?

    So, fess up, what did you do?

  3. Todd says:

    plainchant Alleluia weekdays, Celtic on Sunday

    I had my concerns about the latter, but it was sung with gusto.

    I asked one of our chant-loving students back in Ames this question. Knowing me, I said, what would I have chosen. AD18 didn’t cross his mind.

    Btw, I also thought about the standard Tone 6 plainchant Alleluia as the most likely alternative. So it seems we read each other pretty well after all these years?
