Blank music-team rota, November 2017 - January 2018

This is a printable music-team roster for the period  November 2017 thru January 2018. It has:
  • One row for each Sunday in this period, labelled with the corresponding feast from the Irish liturgical calendar.
  • Extra rows for any non-Sunday feast days when churches in Ireland are likely to have music.   You may need to review it against your own country's liturgical calendar, to remove Irish-specific feasts, and add your own.
    • Two columns with the dates and names of the feast or liturgical calendar day.
    • Three columns for your use.  These are labelled Co-ordinator, Musician(s), Audio-visual.  Change them to suit your local needs (eg you may need Choir Cantor, Animator, Organist, Worship Leader, etc)


    Things to note in this time period

    The major planning challenge in this three months is Christmas - in particular 24 December which is both the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve.

    Why this three month period

    Planning in these three month periods matches both the liturgical and secular seasons :
    • Feb - Mar - April (includes Lent and Easter)
    • May - Jun - Jul (spring / summer in Europe, winter in the southern hemisphere)
    • Aug - Sept - Oct (Back-to-school = start of a new year in Europe)
    • Nov - Dec - Jan (New Year and summer-holidays in the south, people get together in late January to plan for the rest of the year).

    If this combination doesn't suit your church, then it may be better to use the blank music roster template.


    The next version, for February - April  will be available in mid January 2018.  Leave a comment below if you have requests about what else it should include.
