¡Canta la Misa!
Responding to the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on Sacred Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium, the purpose of Canta la Misa is to promote full, active and conscious participation in the Holy Mass through Sacred music. This is done in several ways. First, by setting the Entrance and Communion antiphons and Responsorial Psalms to beautiful and simple chant tunes so that a choir, cantor, or congregation may be able to sing them. Second, by including hymns and songs that are fitting for the Holy Mass yet accessible to the average parish. Third, by including the Sunday readings so that the faithful may follow along with the spoken Word. The beautiful typesetting and cover design completes this book as a perfect addition for a parish striving to promote reverence in the Sacred Liturgy and active participation in its Sacred Mysteries.
