"The Church acknowledges Gregorian chant as distinctive of the Roman liturgy; therefore, other things being equal, it should be given pride of place in liturgical services." (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy # 116)

Presented by: Mr. Christopher M.C. Deibert

Workshop Description:
This instruction comes to us directly from the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council, the Roman Missal and the Graduale Romanum being the keys to unlocking our understanding of the above instruction from the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. Armed with the knowledge of these two marvelous volumes, we may guide our parishes and worshipping communities to be more closely united with the Church universal.
This workshop, given for priests and parish musicians, will explore the history of the music contained within the pages of the Roman Missal and the Graduale Romanum, and will offer insight on practival implementation at the parish level, both in English and Latin.

Who Should Attend?
Priests, parish music directors and those involved in music ministry or liturgical planning.
