LTCM 507 Singing the Word


Music is a force of immense power in the church’s worship. This course lays the foundations for students to participate in and oversee the ministry of music in the parish in collaboration with persons skilled in music. It includes theological engagement with music, the role of music in the liturgy and the congregation, a working knowledge of The Hymnal 1982, vocal techniques for the student’s own singing of the liturgy as deacon and priest, and, for those who do not have it, basic music literacy and skills. Participation in this course is required for functioning as a cantor in the Chapel of the Apostles.
