Recommendations for Liturgical Musicians

After about two decades of leading music in a dozen or more churches, both Catholic and Protestant, I've taken a long break and am focussing on just getting my growing family to Mass on a weekly basis. These notes and recommendations come from my experience leading music, and comments from others. Feel free to write if you have additional comments that you think would be helpful.

These are intended as helpful tips and pointers -- not as criticisms of any individual. Persons wishing to improve their liturgical music programs are encouraged to consider these points and to gradually adopt them, one or two at a time, over a period of several months (or even years).

Musicians: This is a lot of information and too much to try to attempt all at once. If someone has left this for you, they care about you, the Mass and the parish. Try not to take it "personally."
