LITURGICAL MUSIC CONSULTATION

As the overall purpose of the Psalterium Institute is to promote and perform beautiful music from both the Catholic and “classical” traditions, private instruction in vocal production is available for ensemble participants and other interested students.  In addition, cantor training is offered that will include vocal instruction, psalm singing, the fundamentals of chant, training in specialized liturgical genres, and instruction in performance awareness and the core liturgical repertoire.

 

In addition, the Institute provides Music Ministry Consultation services that include working with parish music directors and pastor to plan and develop parish music program that are in keeping with a pastor or music director’s goals, resources, and aspirations.

 

The Institute will also be available to work more intensively with pastors to develop their vocal and chanting skills, including practice in vocal technique as well as rehearsal in basic presidential chants, the Exultet, prefaces, and other repertoire.
