Notes on the use of the scores

Gospel Acclamations
Alleluia except in Lent when Praise to you, O Christ is sung.

Eucharistic Prayer
The Preface Dialogue, Doxology and Amen are usually sung to the tones from the Missal.
For the Memorial Acclamation, the celebrant intones The mystery of faith from the Missal tone. The congregation can respond with one of the four responses in the missal.

Ordinary of the Mass
Mass XVI is short and suitable for weekdays.
Mass XVIII is suitable for Advent or Lent.
Mass XI (Orbis Factor) is suitable for Ordinary Time.
Mass VIII (De Angelis) is often sung, and tends to be best known by older generations. It is considerably more complex however than many of the other chants.
Credo I is suggested instead of Credo III as it is far simpler musically.
Some English settings of the Mass are available, although there are few noteworthy examples. Caution needs to be further exercised as the text does not always conform to the approved translation. These vernacular settings must usually be purchased.

Super singing from our Bradford Girls meeting for their second in person rehearsal since March. Regular rehearsals are still online, delighted to hear standards maintained!

And in a busy day for our choirs, Bradford Catholic Girls' Choir rehearsed (in person! hooray!) this afternoon...here's a snippet of what they were up to...

The Cathedral Junior Boys' Choir met in person for the first time since March this afternoon - so lovely to see them all. The high standard that our choirs are returning at is testament to the excellent skill and hard work our team brought to zoom and YouTube sessions 🎶🎵🎶

12 members of Bradford Catholic Boys Choir sang Mozart, Casciolini and the Gregorian Missa Cum Jubilo at St Joseph's Church, Bradford this morning. We are enormously proud of our choristers for rising to the challenge of singing in limited numbers, two metres apart!

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
