Quote from: J.Z. Herrenberg on June 06, 2022, 03:58:40 AMI just listened. Yes, a very inspired piece. I don't know what I missed the first time... Now it spoke to me much more strongly. As a Catholic convert (2014) who sings in a choir during Mass (we sing works by Haydn, Mozart, Gounod, Bruckner and others), it was wonderful to hear what Lloyd does with words I know so well (although, since Vatican II, we don't sing the Credo anymore, which is a pity). Lloyd's Credo is tremendous, especially the passage dealing with the Incarnation. The Credo and the Sanctus are the high points for me, too. Great music!
Quote from: relm1 on June 06, 2022, 05:17:43 AMWhy was the credo dropped?
Quote from: J.Z. Herrenberg on June 06, 2022, 05:25:10 AMThey wanted everyone to be involved in the profession of faith. So they dropped the Credo movements from the masses and let everyone say the Credo (or sing it from a hymnal). In the Requiem they scrapped the Dies Irae (people don't like Hell much, or mentioning God's wrath).
Quote from: relm1 on June 13, 2022, 06:09:16 AMBut the credo and Dies Irae are some of the best sources for music!
Quote from: J.Z. Herrenberg on June 13, 2022, 06:56:13 AMI know. Our choir knows... But that's Vatican II for you.
