Prayers of the Faithful - Spoken or Sung?


#1

On Sundays at my parish, the petitions are spoken but the response is always sung.

What usually happens on Sundays at your parish?


#2

Monastery in my case. All sung on Sundays and important feasts, all spoken on ordinary weekdays and memorials.


#3

Spoken. I’ve always liked them sung, but the priests that I have worked for have all expressed that singing it made that portion of the Mass unnecessarily long.
I think in all the years I have played, I’ve only had them sung once.


#4

I’ll be there Tuesday. Can’t wait! Staying at L’Oréade.


#5

Typically spoken.


#6

Oh, in our parish they are spoken. The only times they’ve been chanted was during Evening Prayer.
