The latest issue of Pastoral Music hit my mailbox today. It looks like I have an interesting read ahead of me. Fr Anthony Ruff, PrayTell moderator, gives a basic primer on reading and singing chant notation. Without looking at the issue, any guesses on who penned the article “Polyphony in Today’s Liturgy: A Beginner’s Guide”?
NPM prez J. Michael McMahon offers some food for thought:
As you reflect on your own ministry and musical leadership, consider whether and how we can help to make chant part of the living tradition of Catholics in the United States.
