James MacMillan is writing a setting of the new translation of the Mass for the Papal Mass in Scotland.
I hope B&H publish it quickly too,, so that it takes hold before anything err iffy takes hold.
Maybe we are returing to times when the best composers write for the Church. We are just lucky that James MacM is a Catholic.
UPDATE also from Berenike
The Scottish Catholic Observer can exclusively reveal that it is this new translation of the Roman Missal that renowned Scottish composer James MacMillan is now setting to music for the Papal visit. His arrangement will be used when Pope Benedict XVI celebrates Mass at Bellahouston on September 16, an exciting first for Scotland, and again when the Holy Father beatifies Cardinal John Henry Newman later in his visit.
A good plan, methinks.
