At the Cathedral, we used to use the Red Worship III books before the new, horrible translations, came out, where GIA pretty much butchered beautiful hymns with inclusive language. On the whole, with some glaring exceptions, the original Worship III had a solid collection of fine music. I own copies of RitualSong and Gather Comprehensive. Neither of them are as good as the old Worship III. I recently acquired Worship II and compared some of the hymns in that volume to my copy of Worship III. I noted that the lyrics to Draw Us in the Spirit’s Tether had changed somewhat in Worship III.
At least, to their credit, they did not chop up Alleluia, Sing to Jesus and kept all references to the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist. The Mass settings by Proulx are still intact. I hope that he can re-work the Community Mass settings to fit the new translations.
Incidentally, for my cousin’s wedding, I am planning to use A Community Mass. She is amenable to that. We are also going to use Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence, also found, intact, in Worship III (at least the older version that I have).
