At their June 2011 meeting, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Bishops Committee on Divine Worship made the decision to allow gradual incorporation of the new sung parts of the mass, with the permission of the Diocesan Bishop. Much concern has arisen about the singing of the Gloria with little to no liturgical use prior to Christmas. The Bishops hope to alleviate this issue by allowing liturgical use of particularly the Gloria, Holy and Memorial Acclamations early.
