There's one thing that I think I've missed for the past three or so years, that might seem pretty trivial, but I do miss it. I miss the sung passion. I miss Victoria's wonderful tones. I miss the soaring choir responses. I'll probably never take part in a service with them again, even though GIA does offer it using the modern Roman lectionary.But most Catholic parishes don't find it worth it to go through the trouble of preparing a choir and two or three cantors to sing it, and most priests can't sing anyway. They fear the people will revolt in having the passion 'stolen' from them , or that the people will get bored. Honestly, after hearing the first six or so verses of the passion, I've learned the tone by heart, and I'm sure that with a pointed text, the congregation could learn it quickly. And even if the didn't, I don't think that's so bad.
But I'm probably alone on this.
Until a future miracle, I'll just continue to listen to my recordings of the passion and pray for a better day.
