Adoremus, Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy

Adoremus Bulletin on Music


Adoremus's commitment to the improvement of music for Catholic worship is singularly evident in its production of the Adoremus Hymnal, published by Ignatius Press, now in its second printing. But in addition to providing a worthy alternative, as the Hymnal does, it is worthwhile to focus on the strengths (and weaknesses) of what most of us encounter in our parishes. Articles are listed from most recently published and are posted backwards. (See Church Documents page and Actions of the Holy See on Liturgy and Music - 1903-1974 for liturgical documents on music.)

Taking up the Psalter - "Recently I was asked by some friends who are not accustomed to using the Psalter, why it might be to their advantage to take it up in their worship and private devotion. This should not be too difficult a matter to explain, I thought at first. Anyone who has listened to Handel’s Messiah is aware of the long Christian tradition of reading the Old Testament as a book of prophecy about Christ. Surely this would be a good place to start." -- by Samuel F. Weber, OSB, Vol. XVI, No. 2, April 2010
