All ya need besides the choir is:
a director knowledgeable about both the music of the Church and Her theology of sacred music; as well as a chaplaincy with a shared enthusiasm for the liturgy.How many parishes are in want of those minimal requirements?
But seriously, folks... nice article by CMAA stalwart Dr Kurt Poterack.
I'm trying to not worry about the fact that they are thinking of instituting a "Children's Mass" at my parish, and that as a CCD (yes, they call it by that old school term,) volunteer who is known to have some small knowledge of music I may be asked to help teach the young'ns the, uhm... liturgical songs that have been selected as the core repertoire.
I'd bet every penny I own that this tops the list.
And Let There Be Cheese in Church is next.....
So, how to have a beautiful sung liturgy in a Catholic parish? we got an article on that?
