The Music of the Romero Beatification


 
BEATIFICATION OF ARCHBISHOP ROMERO, MAY 23, 2015
 

 



The music of the liturgy for Blessed Oscar Romero consisted of a large body of songs of traditional spirituality set in contemporary arrangements, tinged with three particular accents: (1) a modern suite tending toward jazz; (2) a folkloric set adapted to the regional post-conciliar liturgy and (3) a pinch of music tailored for the occasion. The resulting blend made the event, which was televised by 14 international broadcasters, a real hemispheric culture happening.
Most of the songs were spirtualist music, but from post-conciliar composers who emphasize people's participation in the banquet of the Eucharist, with the modern arrangements of the international liturgies of the Church. These included songs that are well-known across the continent such as “Pescador de Hombres” (in a melodic-blues-jazz arrangement) and “Que Alegría Cuando Me Dijeron” (with a lively Latin rhythm). [At the bottom of this post is a list of all the songs that were played, along with links to the video of the ceremony to be able to play each song.] Interwoven into this matrix were the three elements mentioned above.
The most cutting edge component consisted of a couple of songs with jazzy overtones, including perhaps the most prominent of all those heard, Psalm 71 (“Tu Reino es Vida”) which resonated during the beatification rite. Commentators have described the style as even “Broadway”-sounding in its arrangement. Another song that was also imbued with a touch of jazz was “Alrededor de tu mesa” during the entrance, but less than Psalm 71, which really strikes the listener for its hyper modern sound, very competently executed.
The indigenous sounds of the popular masses were also interjected. Given the history of Archbishop Romero with the reforms of the Second Vatican Council, this component is fascinating because it implicates the action of Romero. [More: Archbishop Romero’s liturgical style.] The liturgical constitution «Sacrosanctum Concilium» of 1963 established that the celebrations of the Church must carry the flavors of the local culture to embody the realities of believers. “In certain parts of the world, especially mission lands, there are peoples who have their own musical traditions, and these play a great part in their religious and social life,” the document prays. “For this reason due importance is to be attached to their music, and a suitable place is to be given to it, not only in forming their attitude toward religion, but also in adapting worship to their native genius.”
Taking up these guidelines, liturgists in Latin America developed liturgical music that accompanied not only the great liturgies of the Church but also sought to decisively accompany the Latin American peoples in their hopes and joys. A pioneer of the liturgical movement was Mexican Bishop Sergio Mendez Arceo, who developed mariachi Masses in the 50s and produced the first “Misa Panamericana” which later gave rise to the popular masses that were heard in the liturgy of beatification of Archbishop Romero . In fact, Bishop Mendez approached Archbishop Romero during the meeting of CELAM in Puebla in 1979, and the two exchanged ideas. Archbishop Romero later commissioned the “Salvadoran Popular Mass” whose notes echoed during the beatification ceremony.
During the procession of the bishops we heard “Vamos todos al banquete” from the Salvadoran Popular Mass. During the offertory, “Te ofrecemos padre nuestro” from the Nicaraguan Popular Mass was heard. Both songs worked in the use of native instruments like the marimba, which served not only to add authenticity but also an intensely festive flavor to the occasion. The instrumentation and the lively and upbeat arrangements of other songs (like “Venimos con alegría”) reinforced that sense.  The “Santo” from the ‘Spanish Mass’ was borrowed and used, with its vocal harmonies sounding almost medieval in their finesse and simplicity.
Special orders for the occasion were two songs: the “Himno a Mons. Romero” of Carmen González Huguet, and the “Himno a Nuestra Señora de la Paz” by Bishop Juan Antonio Dueñas y Argumedo. The Romero hymn was easy and majestic with emotional and pining lyrics; the hymn to the Virgin patron saint of El Salvador regal and imperious, with an original arrangement of the Italian Giovanni "John" Aberle, responsible for the Salvadoran national anthem.
The resulting mixture of distinctly contemporary music (even to innovative levels), native sounds, and arrangements tailor-made for the occasion against a background of conventional contemporary liturgical music profiled the ceremony as a first-rate world class event. However, this combination was not the result of cold calculations, but an organic selection process. First, conductors Alfredo Andino, Lito Aranda, Jose Santamaria Lagos, and Julio García developed a long list of 40 or more songs that they proceeded to weed out in subsequent discussions. The church and its liturgists only gave them three special orders: “Vamos todos al banquete” from the Salvadoran Popular Mass commissioned by Archbishop Romero; “Tu reino es vida” to provide the touch of justice of the prophets of the Old Testament appropriate to the occasion; and “Himno a Nuestra Señora de la Paz” to praise the national patroness and the region where her icon is venerated, which is also the land of Archbishop ​​Romero.
Conductors Salvador Marroquín, José Santamaría and Alfredo Andino.
The performance by the four-part choir consisting of 125 singers was high quality. “They sang like angels descended from heaven,” commented one user on a social network.
The organization of the choir was a minor miracle, made possible because the coordinators started working after Pope Francis approved the martyrdom of Archbishop Romero on February 4, 2015. Between the announcement of the date on March 11 and the beatification on May 23, there were only two and a half months of preparation. Within this time frame, the coordinators selected the songs; hundreds of volunteers showed up to audition to compete for a place in the choir; and after being selected rehearsed three days a week to learn twenty-eight numbers. Only one out of five knew how to read music; even fewer had ever sung in a national choir before.

Choir members faced practical challenges posed by the short time and the needs of staging an event of such dimensions: work-related conflicts, family issues, and countless personal sacrifices. Conductor Alfredo Andino had to miss his son's fifteenth birthday party when he was summoned to the first organizing meeting with only a day's notice. One member had her husband hospitalized up through the day of the ceremony; another member was injured and had to attend rehearsals with a broken foot; another had a fender bender and needed continuous help getting to and from the rehearsals. Transportation problems were widespread: Typical was the member who came from Los Planes de Renderos in the hills outside of San Salvador, and had to home by public transport when the rehearsals ended at nine o'clock at night, in a city where gang members extort money from bus drivers, and recently imposed a system-wide shutdown.
On top of these daily inconveniences for the members, which many viewed as diabolical attacks against their project, there were also collective challenges. During the rehearsals, there was an epidemic wave of the flu that struck many of the choir members. Perhaps more dramatic still, the members of the orchestra had all their musical instruments stolen from the house where they practiced at one point.  Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present, nor future, nor any other creature separated Romero from Christ and his Gospel of love, of justice, of fraternity, of mercy, of forgiveness,” Cardinal Amato said in his homily. Similarly, no challenge, big or small, could overcome the determination of this little great choir. (See list of members.)

The songs of the beatification of Archbishop Romero bear out the old adage that “to sing is to pray twice” as they give glory to God not only through the music but also through the sacrifices accepted and challenges overcome that led the vision to become a reality.

APPENDIX “A” (List of Songs)

I.          ENTRANCE PROCESSION

#1:Venimos con alegría” (“We come in joy”)
Author: Cesáreo Gabaráin
Conductor: Alfredo Andino
Sample (Spanish):Vienen con alegría, Señor; cantando vienen con alegría, señor; los que caminan por la vida, Señor, sembrando tu paz y amor”.
Sample translation: They come joyfully oh Lord; they come joyfully singing oh Lord; those who walk through life oh Lord, sowing your peace and love.
Watch video: Click here (minute 18:08).
Observations: Same author as #18, “Pescador de Hombres”.  This song began the entrance procession of the priests. Although not part of a folk mass, its typically Latin sound (accordions and lively rhythms) gave a festive start to the ceremony. 

#2:Que alegría cuando me dijeron” (Salmo 121) (“What joy when they told me”—Psalm 121)
Author: Miguel Manzano Alonso
Conductor: José Santamaría
Sample (Spanish):Que alegría cuando me dijeron ‘Vamos a la casa del Señor’.  Ya están llegando nuestros pies a tus puertas, Jerusalén’”.
Sample translation: How happy I was when they told me ‘Let us go to the Lord’s house.’  Our feet are now reaching your doors, Jerusalem.
Watch video: Click here (minute 22:45 y 30:20 (it is repeated)).
Observations: Same author as #6, “Tu reino es vida”.  The words of Psalm 121 are among the most fitting to begin a Mass and therefore are frequently used. The song was repeated to fill up the long entrance procession of 1,300 priests which lasted nearly half an hour. 

#3:Alrededor de tu mesa” (“Around your table”)
Author: Francisco Palazón
Conductor: José Santamaría
Sample (Spanish):Alrededor de tu mesa venimos a recordar que tu palabra es camino, tu cuerpo fraternidad”.
Sample translation: Around your table we gather to remember that your word is a way and your body is brotherhood.
Watch video: Click here (minute 26:01).
Observations: Same author as #7, “Gloria,” and #17, “Acerquémonos todos al altar”.  The first indication of a modern, almost experimental sound during the beatification ceremony, would have been the synthesizer-produced notes of this song. 

#4:Vamos todos al banquete” (“Let us all go to the banquet”)
Author: Guillermo Cuellar (from the Misa Popular Salvadoreña)
Conductor: Alfredo Andino
Sample (Spanish):Vamos todos al banquete, a la mesa de la creación; cada cual con su taburete tiene un puesto y una misión”.
Sample translation: Let’s all go to the banquet, to the table of creation, everyone with their own stool has a place and a mission.
Watch video: Click here (minute 39:14). 
Observations: Part of the Mass commissioned by Archbishop Romero but never heard by him. It evokes a famous homily by Fr. Rutilio Grande, which compares the Kingdom with “a great banquet on tables with long tablecloths, with plenty for everyone. And nobody will be left out without their stool and fair share.” Cardinal Amato looked very cheerful and upbeat in the entrance procession with this song.

Conductor: José Santamaría
Sample (Spanish):Señor ten piedad de nosotros, Cristo ten piedad de nosotros”.
