Statement on the Formation of Liturgical Musicians
The formation of professional liturgical musicians is of major importance to the life of the Church. The Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians (CRCCM) strongly urges the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops through its Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy to consider this issue thoughtfully in any future documents regarding liturgical music. CRCCM supports current efforts to set professional standards for Catholic liturgical musicians. These will help raise the standard of professional lay ecclesial leadership in the church among those charged with directing our Catholic musical and liturgical life.
