Default Traditional Music for Mass

By traditional, I mean with a small "t", not necessarily all in Latin. Also, lean heavily on German Catholic songs. Something that sounds good on an organ. Nothing that was written after about 1965, and certainly nothing written for a guitar!

Examples: Panis Angelicus, but also Holy God We Praise Thy Name.

For a funeral, but it is 2012, so not so far as Dies Irae; Easter, Funeral, or Eucharistic in nature. We know a lot of them, but we're brainstorming for a funeral we think we need to expect within the next year or so.

Thanks.

Ave Maria,
Latin, yes, but beautiful and traditional. It's how I memorized the Hail Mary in Latin.

Hail Holy Queen

Mary Immaculate

ok, so these are all Marian hymns, but they are all so beautiful and I love then.

Since you can't have a catholic funeral with Eagles Wings, I recommend the tract from the the first Sunday in Lent from the 1962 missal. It's psalm 90

One of my favorite hymns for funerals was written in the nineteenth century and was a favorite of Martin Luther King, Precious Lord, Take My Hand.

My father-in-law had requested for his funeral an old American hymn with a Celtic style, What Wonderous Love is This.

Both of these are highly appropriate for funerals.

Sadly; very little Catholic Church music both with big and small T is heard from the choir-loft in today's Church. Most priest who went to seminaries before 1965 are either retired or deceased. I think good distinct Catholic Music today often depends on a number of factors. First being how orthodox the seminary the priest came from and how seriously involved the priest applies himself in having his say what distinct traditional Catholic music gets played during the Liturgy. Traditional doesn't always imply strictly Latin though its one of my personal favorites.

It seems today the priest gives more qualified educated lay people such as Music Directors and Organist in the Church the liberty of running the liturgical music show.
Perhaps fewer priest in seminaries don't hone their skills by studying to receive a Licendate in liturgical music.

My favourite setting for a requiem mass is Victoria's. A nice post Communion hymn would be Abide with Me, Jerusalem the Golden, or In our day of thanksgiving. Finally the Russian Kontakion is beautful if chanted as the coffin is blessed and censed.

Oh, it's not a problem with the music directors at the church. They're fine, and they use both the older songs and the more recent songs in that parish. They are also a tiny parish, and tend to get retired priests out to say Mass for them as often as not. We just wanted a memory jog on what the older songs were. We don't hear them at our parish much, and we don't want to forget any of the gems.
