“By its very nature song has both an individual and a communal dimension. Thus, it is no wonder that singing together in church expresses so well the sacramental presence of God to his people.”  Sing to the Lord

 

Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship is the guiding document for all music ministry in the Diocese of Stockton. Copies can be ordered from USCCB Publishing.

       
 

Worship Aids and Copyright Law:

Wor­ship aids are meant to assist those gath­ered with appro­pri­ate par­tic­i­pa­tion in the liturgy. Each parish is required to strictly adhere to copy­right law in their use of music by min­is­ters as well as by the com­mu­nity through wor­ship aids. Please fol­low the below links for infor­ma­tion to assist you in using these tools well.

 

   
  English Mass Settings for the Third Edition of the Roman Missal

 

All parishes are welcome to choose the Mass setting they would like for the Roman Missal, Third Edition. The Diocese does recommend that parishes learn the following Mass settings over the coming year or two:

 

   
  • If you primarily use OCP music, we recommend the "Mass of Christ the Savior" by Dan Schutte. The Cathedral will be using this Mass setting.
  • If you primarily use GIA music, we recommend the "Mass of Joy and Peace"by Tony Alonso. The Diocese will use this Mass setting over the next year for the Vocations Mass and Ministry Day. Several parishes indicated that they will use this Mass setting for their Youth Masses
  • For a larger choir and music ministry, we recommend the GIA setting of"Storrington Mass" by Marty Haugen. The Diocese will use this Mass setting over the next year for ordination and Chrism Mass.
