Parish News: Summary of Music Survey

November 4, 2016

Summary of Comments:

  • There is a strong need for uplifting, inspirational, contemporary (post Vatican II), modern music.
  • Music Liturgy is essential to a thriving parish; All Saints needs to take a serious look at what music liturgy has to offer; maybe different styles to accommodate different tastes, e.g., chamber music may not resonate with families.
  • More resources need to be committed to music. 
  • Need more music that is current and “singable” like that at the school masses; a strong music liturgy that appeals to families.
  • Music should encourage participation, songs should be familiar, sung often enough to be learned. 
  • More connection to school band; Consider creation of a school choir.
