Sing Like a Catholic, by Jeffrey Tucker, chronicles how we are moving from a world in which
"Catholics can’t sing" to one in which singing like a Catholic is a glorious thing, the fulfillment of a brilliant heritage that began in the Apostolic age with chant, continued through the middle ages with the invention of the musical staff and the Renaissance with soaring heights of the polyphonic era, and all the way through the later centuries with orchestral and organ Masses.

In order to continue this trend, we need a paradigm shift: the Roman Gradual for the choir, the Kyriale for the people, and the Missal for the celebrant. The music most appropriate to liturgy, the author argues, is either that music or an elaboration on that music.

Liturgical music is a special sort that lifts our hearts and minds ever upwards to the Heavens. The push is not so much for “restoration” but rather for an ideal, which is what Catholic musicians lack and desperately need

All proceeds go to scholarships to the Sacred Music Colloquium.

It is very useful for clarifying the present situation of the music for liturgy in the Wesytern Church

Although I am Catholic I also have a strong interest in ecumenism, and believe the title can be construed as divisive rather than unifying. Viewers should check out http://www.myspace.com/stevegreenonli... and give that song "Let the Walls Come Down" (by Steve Green) some thought.
