GRANTS PASS — Excitement was high as 50 musicians from the Southern Oregon vicariate gathered at St. Anne Church to attend a workshop on liturgical music, led by OCP composer Ken Canedo.  

Canedo led the eager musicians through topics related to the history of liturgical music, as well as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document, “Sing to the Lord.” The workshop focused on the use of music in Mass as a form of prayer.  

Canedo reminded participants that, when we come to worship, we must worship God and not the musician.  In this way, he was asking the musicians to reflect on the primacy of Jesus Christ in the liturgy.  

In the course of his presentation, Canedo shared his own memories and reflections of the use of music in the pre-Vatican II Church, reminiscing on chant and Latin. From chant, he led the group to explore the “Folk Mass” period in history, which was followed by the current (contemporary) use of music in liturgical celebrations.  Participants had an opportunity to ask questions, and to join in song throughout the presentations.

As a conclusion, Canedo and the musicians explored the bilingual Mass setting, Missa Santa Fe.
