This video seminar will explore the characteristics of sacred music from a Catholic perspective with consideration of other faith traditions. Dr. Fitzgerald will discuss Roman Catholic Church documents pertaining to sacred music, the distinction between sacred and secular music, and the trans-temporal nature of the liturgy and why it requires music of a particular sort. This lecture and demonstration will provide practical advice to further develop and enhance a church’s sacred music program and increase appreciation for the liturgy and for sacred music in general, thereby enriching the spiritual life of the participant.


Registered students will be sent a link to watch the lecture at their own convenience.
