Ann,

The really sad thing is that I mentioned to my nephew (one of the very few Catholic relatives we have -- goes to a different parish than we) the other day that they started using a terrible version of the Allelujah at our mass.

The FIRST thing he said was, "Ugh...the one with the sticks?"

I mean, really! When someone instantly equates "terrible" with "the one with the sticks," I think that's a good indication that it's time for the sticks to go.

Maybe this weekend I will hide the sticks. :P

We have done the 'Halle, Halle Halle' before, but I have never seen it done with sticks.

Lisa,

I see you feel my pain! If you see the sticks come out...RUN! :wink:

That sounds almost like the clapper (or is called a knocker?) at the Triduum.

I inherited Unidos in Christos/United in Christ from OCP. Durn! I hate those things! One of my duties is to locate a better hymnal for the growing congregation; however, I figured one more year, give the St. Michael hymnal time to come out with its choir edition... do a bit more research... save the parish a bit more money.

You ought to see the notes I have written all over the accompaniment books: "Sing ourselves Jesus," "Too politically oriented," "WE ARE NOT THE Eucharist!!!" with huge slashes running through the offending songs (can't call 'em hymns)

It's odd...there are little wooden sticks that are clanged together, as it is sung something like this:

I don't love it. They started doing it in my church a few weeks ago.

I'd go up after mass and beat them with the sticks. How revolting.

It depends on what kind of sticks. If they are the short fat sticks, claves, then it might be difficult to wack somebody with them, but perhaps you could jab somebody in the eye with one, if you are quick enough maybe both eyes. :)

Greetings,

Our youth choir does that one. The youth can't stand that alleluia, but the 40 something adults who run the group think it is wonderful, and you can only get the kids if you do music that appeals to 40 something adults.

I heard it called one of the above; don't recall which. Crotalus I suppose is the Latin name?

It hurts, because it's true. :(

Alas...the sticks continue. Hopefully they will change to something different at least for advent.

Am I crazy to think that the clanging sticks are too distracting when we are supposed to be preparing to hear the Gospel?

Most people in my parish refer to it as the "clapper". My priest and deacon use the Latin name "crotalus".

We use the Breaking Bread by OCP. Our choir manages to only pick the Hagen/Haas/Schutte songs. :barf:

I've been tempted to buy an Adoremus hymnal and leave up where the choir sit. :twisted: My biggest problem w/the songs (besides the lyrics) is that they are so darn hard to sing.
