Parish News: Summary of Music Survey
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.
