Great importance is attached to the use of singing and music in the Celebration of Mass, especially on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, with due consideration given to the culture and abilities of the people, the gathered assembly.
Liturgical song should correspond to the spirit of the liturgical action and foster participation of all the faithful, adding to the beauty and solemnity of our celebration.
Song deepens our participation, helping us to dwell a little longer on the texts we sing and to express our faith and devotion. The melody and rhythm of music can bring its own beauty highlighting the parts of the Mass and indicating the reverence we wish to show them.
Music and song make such a powerful contribution to the Liturgy, it is important that it is used well. This means our musicians and singers have to develop not only their musical skills but also their understanding of the Liturgy.
We welcome singers and instrumentalists of all ages.
