ICEL director foresees more use of music in Mass

CWN - August 31, 2010

Speaking recently at a conference in Atlanta, Georgia, the executive director of ICEL (the International Commission on English in the Liturgy) spoke on liturgical music, and the prospects for “singing the Mass” rather than merely “singing at Mass.”

The New Liturgical Movement has obtained the full text of the talk by Msgr. Andrew Wadsworth. Readers will quickly recognize—if they did not already know—that ICEL today is very different from the organization that produced liturgical translations of a decade ago.
