Music and Liturgy is a workshop intended to provide the parish musician(s) with the background, ideas and resources needed to provide traditional and contemporary music that complements and integrates into the liturgy of worship services. Some of the questions that will be addressed in this session are:
- How do you select music (hymns, praise songs, anthems, worship songs, preludes, postludes) for services?
- What resources are available for selecting music?
- Where can sheet music and chord charts be downloaded (both paid and public domain / open source)?
- How do you introduce new music to the congregation?
- How do you build a music team to provide music?
Part of this session will also be an open forum to provide the opportunity to ask questions that were not addressed in this session, as well as allow participants to share their experiences.
