Hi. I am a member of a choir. There are several choirs in my church.
We had a meeting for all the choirs.
The person assigned to supervise all the choirs of the church told us that it is not good to sing bad, BUT it is also not good to sing too good. It will distract the congregation from focusing on the mass.
Is it right to be told that?
There is a man that reads the first and second readings…his voice is like a VoiceOver for an audio book. It sounds really good…so is this man supposed to not sound good? Actually because this man reads the readings well I pay more attention to the readings.
I see videos of priests that sing panis angelicus and it’s beautiful to listen too…should they be told to not sing good?
