Sacred Music Council.
Enquiry to Episcopal Conferences and Major Religious Institutes and Faculties of Theology.
Fifty years on from the Second Vatican Council, the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments and the Pontifical Council for Culture are undertaking, with a pastoral perspective, an enquiry into the state of sacred music in all its aspects (liturgy, formation, pastoral activity, concerts) with the aim of reflecting on the developments in the field of music and the desire to offer a contribution to the ministry of musicians for the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful.
The survey contains questions that individual choir heads might find difficult to answer. Do not worry, these will be answered by the LMC and other relevant parties. However we would like to solicit your input on as many of the questions as possible before we collate the responses and send it back to the Vatican.
