Now in its second edition, Guide for Music Ministers, includes commentary and reflection upon the newest music document from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship.

  • A basic theological and historical overview of ritual music
  • Liturgical catechesis about the role of ritual music at Mass and other sacramental celebrations
  • Practical advice concerning particular liturgical music roles
  • Ways to deepen your prayer life
  • Quotations from the documents of the Church
  • Instructive photos and text boxes
