Tradition and Renewal: Recent Liturgical Work in the Church of Norway

Arve Brunvoll

Arve Brunvoll of Bergen gives an account of recent liturgical work in the Church of Norway. The paper describes current patterns of worship and outlines the stirrings for reform in the 1920s. It examines in detail the work of the 1965 Liturgical Commission and its outcome of a new order for Mass in 1977. This in general was well received but there has been much criticism, especially from younger ministers and church musicians. Further changes may be expected.
