This day-long formational/training event provides an introduction to music in the Liturgy and the role of musicians in the celebration of the Eucharist. The foundational resources are Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship/Cantemos al Señor: La Música en el Culto Divino (USCCB) and Flor y Canto. The day also includes skill development sessions, providing an opportunity for “hands on” learning for participants.

Presenters:
The Instituto is led by a team of two to four presenters who are experienced pastoral musicians and have knowledge and practice in the area of liturgical music. In particular, presenters have a grounded understanding of Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship/Cantemos al Señor: La Música en el Culto Divino (USCCB), as well as familiarity with the repertoire of Flor y Canto.

Keynote: Sing to the Lord—An Overview
In this keynote, the participants are introduced to the foundational principles of pastoral music ministry as presented in the U.S. Bishops document, Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship/Cantemos al Señor: La Música en el Culto Divino (USCCB). Topics include: The Role of Music in the Liturgy; the Role of the Pastoral Musician; and The Three Judgments. Emphasis is placed on the role of the musician as disciple and minister.

Skill Sessions – Parts I and II
These sessions provide opportunity for “hands on” learning, and are selected to address the needs of the local church. More often than not, skills sessions in vocal technique and the guitarist as a liturgical musician will be essential. Providing a session on basic music selection skills will be important, which will incorporate information from the Sing to the Lord document.

Practicum: The Songs of Flor y Canto
This session is planned and executed depending on the season of the liturgical year, as well as specific ritual music that the host in collaboration with the team has made known as an area of need.
