2017 Liturgy Advisory for Lent and Easter
Copyright Licensing Update

OCP and World Library Publications have now joined OneLicense.net! This means that you will no longer need a separate license for these publishers. OneLicense has integrated the same features from each publisher including downloading of hymn files. For those of you who regularly use "contemporary" music, you will still need a CCLI license to reproduce the majority of these songs.

*Just a friendly reminder that any reproduction of music or text of copyrighted songs whether in print or projected must contain the appropriate copyright information including the license number authorizing the reproduction. This only applies to reprints of congregational hymns. Full accompaniments, guitar accompaniments, and choir arrangements are typically not covered by a reprint license and may not be reproduced without written consent from the publisher or composer. When in doubt, call the copyright holder!

St. James Cathedral, Orlando


A moving prayer service set to Lenten music sung by The St. James Cathedral Schola Cantorum . A freewill offering is appreciated. The concert is free, but a freewill offering will be taken up.

Tenebrae with the Basilica Choir (Basilica Music Dpeartment)
Friday, April 7, 2017
7:30 p.m.
Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe


Tenebrae (Latin for “shadows” or “darkness” is a dramatic service highlighting the gradual extinguishing of candles accompanied by a series of readings and exquisitely sung choral repertoire. The cumulative effect will leave the Basilica in near darkness rep- resenting the darkness of sin as the the life of the Son of God grows closer to termination by crucifixion. We will sense the loneliness and abandonment of Jesus, the earthquake at Our Lord’s death, the closing of the tomb and the tumultuous clash between God and Satan. This service is free and open to all.

Board of Directors Meeting

Our Board of Directors met at Our Lady of Fatima Retreat Center in Indianapolis on February 1 and 2, 2017. It was very much a working meeting! Under the able leadership of Father Tom Ranzino, Board Chair, they discussed key issues of concern, heard reports from the Executive Director on daily operations and new initiatives, and reviewed the budget and investments.

We were pleased to welcome Father Andrew Menke, newly-appointed Executive Director of the BCDW Secretariat, who sits on our Board as an ex-officio member. He updated the Board on the state of liturgical books-- those still anticipating confirmation from the Holy See and those in the process of translation with ICEL. The final review process and edits on the Misal Romano continues.

The Board and National Office are hard at work on many ongoing projects. The participation of our members is welcome at all levels.

NPM Update

MA in Liturgical Music

The master of arts program in liturgical music at Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary, Collegeville, Minnesota, long known for its high quality, has just been strengthened and expanded into a four-semester forty-two-credit program. Students now participate in the VoiceCare Network, sing in the graduate Chapel Choir, do supervised music ministry in the graduate chapel, have placements in parishes with a theological reflection component, and sing Gregorian chant during each semester of their program. The next audition date (for full consideration of scholarship offers) is March 26-27, 2017, with rolling admission thereafter. More information at PrayTell.

Closing: St. Joseph, Rensselear


On February 3, the Provincial Council of the Cincinnati Province of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood announced to the students, faculty, and alumni at Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Indiana, that the college would “suspend all academic activities located on our Rensselaer campus . . . effective following May 2017 graduation . . . ending a tradition that began more than 125 years ago.” The college leadership offered the possibility that the college may reopen, but since the problem is a decade-long massive debt and limited finances, that is a shaky future. Steve Janco reports that the Rensselaer Program of Church Music and Liturgy, headquartered at Saint Joseph’s, is considering its future. The Rensselaer Program (the country's longest-serving educational program of its kind) has already been offered facilities at other colleges and universities, so watch for announcement of future plans.
