Liturgical Hints & Ideas:
Various tools are extremely useful to the musician responsible for planning liturgical music. During the summer Sundays in Ordinary Time we will explore these tools. The more of these you own or have access to, the easier and more complete will be your planning.

-- Worship 3rd Edition Hymnal --

One of the best and most widespread hymnals in Catholic churches today is GIA Publications' Worship - Third Edition. It contains a basic repertoire of standard hymnody, hymns that every congregation should be nourished with, and is devoid of the "contemporary praise music" (a.k.a. "folk music") that is the unfortunately ubiquitous fast-food of the modern church music diet. A sign of how far we've come from a "standard" Catholic hymnody is the presence of "missalettes" combined with "hymnal wanna-be's." These do no more than allow parish musicians to feed poor quality "fad" music to the congregation, with the idea that they can throw the whole thing away at the end of the season or year. What a sad "rock" on which to build a church music program!

If you're lucky enough to have a real hymnal, and Worship - Third Edition in particular, then you know about all the following information. If not, you should acquire at least one reference copy. Information is available at: Worship III Hymnal

Apart from a good store of solid hymns, Worship - Third Edition has a useful and complete set of indices:
  • Index of First Lines and Common Titles
  • Psalm Refrains Set to Music
  • Index of Tune Names
  • Metrical Index of Tunes
  • Index of Composers, Authors and Sources
  • Hymns Which May Be Sung in Canon
  • Topical Index
  • Liturgical Index
  • Hymns for the Church Year
  • Scripture Passages Related to Hymns
  • Acknowledgements
These indices make the job of planning congregational music much easier.
