Vatican II has retrieved and stressed anew the value of the active
participation of all in the Eucharistic celebration. One manner of
fostering participation is through the congregational singing of
acclamations, responses, and hymns in the language, melodic patterns and
rhythms of the people. This course is a practicum in writing contemporary
liturgical songs. After an overview of the evolution of liturgical music in
the Western church and in the Philippines, and after a brief study of the
function of music in the various parts of the Mass, the course will focus
on the rudiments of music: note reading, scale construction, chord
construction, and harmonization. Then the course will proceed to its main
goal: the writing of contemporary liturgical music in the vernacular of the
students. The course will cover the basics of composing lyrics in meter and
rhyme and establishing rhythmic patterns, setting lyrics to music and
arranging vocal harmony.

Experience in composing songs is not necessary. Students, however, will
have to enroll by pair, one of whom should be able to play the guitar or
the keyboard.
