I was wondering what the common practice is in parishes using the missal of Bl. John XXIII for the congregation to make responses or sing the ordinary.
In my own parish, the worshipers seems fairly split. For instance, at Low Mass, half of us worship silently, while the other half tend to act like it’s a dialogue Mass. At sung Mass, some people sing along with the choir for the ordinary, others remain silent. (Most annoyingly, I’ve sat in front of someone who responded with the servers while the choir was singing). It seems to me that the whole congregation singing the ordinary with the choir would be most in the spirit of Vatican II (yes, a traditionalist used that phrase with a positive connotation!), but I wondered if there were norms or simply customs that govern the level of vocalization.
