. . . an invaluable, comprehensive resource for anyone serious about a thorough contemporary understanding of music in Catholic worship.
Rob Strusinski, University of St. Thomas

For the pastoral musician who is confused about the diversity of styles and celebration models present in the Catholic Church today, From Sacred Song to Ritual Music is must reading. For the pastoral musician familiar with the Church's legislation, From Sacred Song to Ritual Music provides a fresh look at 100 years of evolving viewpoints.
