We need to continue asking for a richer and more reverent hymnal for our churches. (Away with the OCP nonsense!)

For myself, I am researching this, since several parishioners are asking for a more reverent Mass with more silence in it.

Do you know who the sacred music experts on FR are? (So I can get recommendations from them!)

A lot of the great hymns are in the OCP Music Issue we have in my parish. Adoro Te Devote has been in there for years.

But every week seems to be a heaping plateful Haugen, Haas and Schutte. It's torture.

Years ago, after Mass, I thanked the choir director for using Panis Angelicus. Haven't heard it since then, not at Mass anyway.

I’m sure this isn’t helpful but my Anglican Use parish uses the 1940 episcopal hymnal. It has everything you need to for a good Catholic service. Course when I was a kid in the episcopal church in the sixties we didn’t do a lot of the chant settings, the kyries, the glorias, etc., and they abandoned it in 1982. But what’s there is excellent stuff.

My real answer I suppose would be to get some good hymnals and a lot of paper for the copier and put them in the service bulletins.
