The Archdiocesan Liturgy Committee presents
Best Practices for Liturgical Musicians: A Workshop
Why do we sing at Mass? What does the Church teach about music at Mass?
How do we pick music for Mass? What kind of music belongs at different parts
of the Mass? What makes for a good introduction to a hymn? Why do we sing
acclamations at Mass? What’s my role as a musician? What’s a psalm and why
is it so important?
