Since 2009 the Music Sub-Committee of the Liturgical Advisory Committee hasbeen considering the provision of a supplement to CH5. Suggestions of material for inclusion (numbering in excess of 1,500 items) have been received from every county and diocese across the island (and even some from England, France and Canada), and those suggestions have been considered carefully by the Sub-Committee, who presented a proposed list of contents of the supplement to the General Synod several weeks ago. The Bishop of Down and Dromore brought a private members motion to the Synod which stated that the Synod is in agreement with the work being undertaken and supports that work continuing towards a fuller proposal being brought before Synod next year. In all of our discussions so far it has simply been "The Supplement" or "The Book". As the work is progressing rapidly the need for a title is becoming more pressing. Rather than simply brainstorming the Committee (quite a challenging task!) we felt that perhaps a small competition would provide us with a suitable and imaginative title, and so we would like to throw the floor open. There will be a prize for the winning title, which will be presented at Synod next year.
All suggestions are welcome, to the Hon Secretary:
