Church Music Association of America St. Patricks Seminary Fall Sacred Music Workshop

"The CMAA changed my life. I knew there was more to Mass than Hymns, but was unsure of the best path forward. It is one thing to read the documents, but a life-changer to see the Church's guidelines carried out so faithfully. Truly beautiful!
