Liturgical Hints & Ideas

During Ordinary Time in Year B we will highlight passages from the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM) that pertain to music during the liturgy. The GIRM contains rubrics and instructions (some of them new) for the celebration of the Mass. The first section below is a direct quote from the English translation of the document. The second section is a commentary on the passage.

Structure, Elements and Parts of the Mass: Preparation of the Gifts (GIRM #74)

The procession bringing the gifts is accompanied by the Offertory Chant (cf.#37b), which continues at least until the gifts have been placed on the altar. The norms on the manner of singing are the same as for Entrance Chant (see GIRM #48). Singing may always accompany the rite at the Offertory, even when there is no procession with the gifts.

Commentary: The Offertory Procession is a time for music, be it organ, instrumental, choral, vocal, or congregational. In general, I would suggest not using congregational hymns here. Attention is often elsewhere, and simple music to accompany the procession and preparation of the altar and gifts seems better than a congregational "event."

The prescribed Antiphona ad offertorium is not found in the The Roman Missal, just as it was missing from the older Sacramentary, but does occur in the Graduale Romanum, the Gregorian Missal and the Graduale Simplex.

At long last, though, the actual word "Offertory" has returned to the GIRM. And the music is called the "Offertory Chant" — even better!
