Workshops scheduled to help pastoral musicians with new Mass translation

The Archdiocesan Liturgical Music Commission will present six evening workshops featuring recommended musical settings of the new Roman Missal, including the Chant Mass, the Storrington Mass and several revised Mass settings.

The sessions are open to all pastoral musicians, including directors, cantors, choir and ensemble members, and any other people interested in musical settings of the new translation of the Mass.

Sample accompaniments for the Chant Mass will be included, and choral/accompaniment editions of the Storrington Mass will be available for discounted purchase.
