When I started going to Catholic mass, congregational responses to Psalms were something new for me.
The reponse at mass today was ridiculously long. The congregation simply could not remember how it went every time the Psalm called for the response. There was an awkward silence every time.
The Psalm responses are not usually that bad, but they are still a bit long and difficult to catch. The congregational responses usually does sound very ragged.
Whoever it is at the Congregation for Divine Worship or wherever who writes these Psalm responses ought to be sacked.
