More than just a simple guide to liturgical music, The Ministry of Music explores the acclamations, hymns, and responsorial psalm from the perspective of liturgy as ritual enactment of the paschal mystery—an enactment which the music allows us to join. Harmon includes practical advice and suggestions for selecting seasonal music and helps create a paschal mystery spirituality to shape our daily lives.
Begins with an Introduction and Part I, Liturgy and the Paschal Mystery. Chapters in Part II, Musical Implications and Pastoral Applications are: "Defining Liturgical Music," “Singing the Acclamations,” “Singing the Hymns and Songs,” “Singing the Responsorial Psalm,” “Singing the Litanies,” “Selecting Music with the Liturgical Year in Mind,” “Selecting Seasonal Sets of Service Music,” “Selecting a Parish Music Resource.” Concludes with Part III, A Paschal Mystery Spirituality for Liturgical Musicians.
