I don't know what the intention was behind this, but it was an interesting way to skirt the new translation of the Mass. I won't say where this took place because I had not encountered this particular priest before and perhaps this was an anomaly.
Anyway, the responses were "authored" by Dan Schutte and included words that the Agnus Dei does not contain. We were also instructed to sing a memorial acclamation that was not kept as part of the new translation.
I was cooperative and sang the responses as requested, but I sang the correct responses. Bad enough they were set to a Dan Schutte melody.
