I'm not sure where to post this..... so here it goes.
I'm 22 years old, and really the only parish I've known is the one I'm at. I have little knowledge of the repertoire of truly sacred music, simply because we use very contemporary music for the liturgy, i.e. guitars & drums etc.
I've been used to it, and even liked it, until recently. I'm coming to understand that a lot of what we do isn't really appropriate for the liturgy at all (especially the closing for today). Yet the parish still loves it because we do what we do quite well.
I've been blessed with a good singing voice. Many have started to tell me that I should start recording. I would like to record a CD of some good, sacred, traditional, music to sell at my parish to help change people's minds that we may start moving toward a more sacred liturgy.
Can anyone help me with some ideas of what to sing?
