Welcome to the Center for Liturgy and Music! Within these pages you will find tools and resources to enliven the music, liturgy, and preaching in your parish. We subscribe to the belief that worship is the first priority of the Church, and that imaginative, transforming worship leads a congregation toward effective discipleship and into mission, whether across the street or across the world. So, whether you are looking for an answer to a particular question, need a consultant to come to your parish or diocese, or want to take an online course in liturgy, this is the place for you. Look for us on Facebook and on Twitter. We’re here to serve!

Chanting the Psalms is a practice that goes back thousands of years to the time of ancient Israel. Speaking the Psalms is an anomaly, because Psalms are for singing. For some worshippers, however, singing the Psalms is a strange and daunting practice. This workshop will introduce participants to five different styles of psalm singing, and will demonstrate available resources.
