Fall 2018 Music and Liturgy Opportunities – New York Archdiocese

Here’s a shout-out to Jennifer Donelson and her colleagues in the Archdiocese of New York for their extensive offerings in music and liturgy this fall. It is so important that diocesan offices offer formation to parish people ministering in liturgy and music, and the archdiocese is to be commended for putting on such an extensive program.

Go here for further information on the offerings listed below.

Not to be nit-picky, but I do want to suggest politely that it is unfortunate that the chant instruction uses the old Ward Method. The official chant editions use revised square-note notation which is not intended to be sung in the “old Solesmes” equalism of the Ward Method, and everyone knows that the revised Graduale Romanum  will used the same revised notation. But anyway: it’s not a deal-breaker for me, and I truly wish the participants in the workshops great joy in singing Latin chant!
