Uno de los más grandes dones de Dios a nosotros, su creación, fue el don de la canción. En palabras y música, nuestros antepasados en la fe -Moisés, David, Deborah, Pablo, San Gregorio- nos enseñaron cómo deleitarnos en el infinito amor de Dios, proclamar su gloria, dar gracias por su abundante generosidad, y suplicar misericordia y perdón. Cantemos al Señor: La Música en el Culto Divino rememora esta vasta y rica tradición musical al mismo tiempo que presenta lineamientos básicos para comprender el rol y ministerio de la música en la liturgia.

Con base en la obra fundacional de los padres conciliares, Cantemos al Señorrefleja el llamado a una participación plena, activa y consciente en la Liturgia mediante sus elementos cantados. Aborda las preocupaciones prácticas de los líderes pastorales: ministerios apropiados, diversidad cultural, instrumentación, formación, acústica y derechos de autor. Asimismo, formula consideraciones para preparar y juzgar la música para el culto con una revisión a fondo de la estructura musical de la Liturgia
