The Song of the Assembly: Pastoral Music in Practice

The Song of the Assembly: Pastoral Music in Practice

A festschrift in honor of Rev. Virgil Funk, The Song of the Assembly gathers 23 thought-provoking new essays on music in the liturgy.

Contributors include noted liturgists, composers and clergy, among them Nathan Mitchell, Benedictine Fathers Columba Kelly and Anthony Ruff, J. Michael McMahon and Bob Hurd.

Each essay takes as its starting point a particular Church document on music and liturgy published in the past 100 years. The latest release in the Studies in Church Music and Liturgy series from Pastoral Press, the book will be released in summer 2007 on the occasion of Virgil Funks 70th birthday.
