Last week on Perspectives: The Weekly Edition, we spoke about some of the changes we can expect when the new Roman Missal goes into effect on November 27th (the First Sunday of Advent). This week, Pedro asks the question: What does the new translation teach us about music in the liturgy? Pedro speaks with Fr. Bill Burke, the director of the National Liturgy Office of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, and joining him is composer John Dawson, who wrote "Mass Setting B" (Mass of the Holy Family), one of the three approved Canadian Mass settings as found in "Celebrate in Song". Together they'll explain how these new musical settings will assist in our celebration of Holy Mass.
