Why the silence?


יהיו לרצון אמרי פי

During סליחות when reciting the שמע קולינו the
Chazzan says the stanza of יהיו לרצון quietly?

There were some Gedolim who were bothered
by this question and didn't have an answer.

Perhaps, we can attempt to answer this question.

The רמ"א (O.Ch. 123:6) writes, 
"The Chazan at the end of חזרת הש"ץ
does not say.יהיו לרצון אמרי פי"

The Mishna V'rurah says the reason
is because he relies on the תתקבל
of the Kaddish, he will be saying 
after ובא לציון. (not to be repetitive)  

The M.V. also quotes the של"ה and
the גאון who argue and hold that the
Chazzan should say it.

The Minhag is to say it quietly, not to
offend the Psak of the רמ"א.

Perhaps* the same reasoning would
apply during סליחות at שמע קולינו.

Since the Chazan ends the סליחות
with the Kaddish w תתקבל. It would 
sound repetitive to say both יהו לרצון
& תתקבל, therefore, they instituted to 
say the יהיו לרצון quietly.
