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

As Christians we are called to evangelize the world around us. However, Vatican II made it clear that we are also called to be people of dialogue, especially with people of other faiths. In a society that is ever more diverse, how can we properly dialogue with non-Roman Catholic people of faith, yet remain faithful to our mission to evangelize? The presentations offered in this book give helpful insights to this timely question
