Product Description

This book addresses the role of the cantor by clarifying what liturgy and liturgical music are about and helping cantors find their role within that understanding. Several chapters deal with the cantor's primary role as psalmist. Subsequent chapters address the cantor's secondary role as song leader, the cantor gesture, and the identification and formation of persons called to this ministry. The final chapter identifies concrete ways the cantor is called to surrender self to the transforming power of the paschal mystery.

Editorial Reviews

This wonderful booklet . . . is a significant contribution to the role of cantor and explains the spirituality, theology, and pastoral meaning of this ministry and explains how this spirituality and meaning are to be seen and sung through the person of the psalmist.
Emmanuel

Kathleen Harmon makes a significant contribution to the role of the cantor in her marvelous reflections on spirituality. The cantor's ministry is rooted in the paschal mystery of Christ's death and resurrection, finds its richest expression in the singing of the psalms, and has the profoundly pastoral purpose of enabling the prayer of the gathered assembly. Harmon gently challenges cantors to prepare themselves by prayer and study, and then to take on their role with a clear understanding of these important dimensions.
J. Michael McMahon, President, National Association of Pastoral Musicians
