Music

Music is an important part of our participation in liturgy.  Great importance should therefore be attached to the use of singing in the celebration of the Mass, welcoming the diversity of peoples and abilities in our Catholic communities.

The Second Vatican Council placed particular importance on the role of music in fulfilling the purpose of liturgy, which is the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful (CSL 112).

The Liturgy Office of the Catholic Church in England and Wales offers a useful resource that looks at the role of music in the Liturgy of the Eucharist including the Communion Rite.
