One of our readers is having a parish problem, the contraction of the Divine Office within his parish. Weekly Compline, Vespers once in a while, and Terce before the high Mass on Sundays were formerly sung. The Compline group, Vespers, Terce, and high Mass on Sundays all require a choir. Thus far, they have one paid cantor and a vacillating group of volunteers. The parish is mostly disinterested in the liturgy, but not entirely. They have tried and failed to form a choir, never quite connecting with the "single-male-liturgical nerd" demographic so essential to liturgical excellence. Any advice? Any creative ideas from experience? Any outlandish ideas for this fellow which might work?
