The season of Advent begins on the first weekend in December this year. It’s a quick Advent, if you will, as the Fourth Week of Advent is only about 16 or 18 hours. Some musical notes to consider:
• We will use a new music setting for Advent and Christmas. The Mass of a Joyful Heart is a little more spirited setting that has been used at our 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Masses in the past. We’re going to bring this all of our liturgies in the next few seasons. We will return to the Chant settings at the beginning of Lent (February 2018).
• During the season of Advent, the Gloria is not said or sung. It creates a sense of anticipation. Store up your fervor the Vigil of Christmas or Christmas Day.
• During the Christmas season, we will use a new Gloria that gives praise to God with a little spirit of season!
See information on page 11 about some of the other changes in Advent. We will use a different settings for our psalms for the new liturgical year which we think you will embrace. (Remember, they are NOT in the Breaking Bread hymnals.)
