Music Planner

Here are few ideas for music for forthcoming Sundays. However, we recommend The Liturgy Planner which is published by Decani Music.We also recommend Music & Liturgy, the journal of The Society of St Gregory, which includes an excellent music planner and is free to members – worth taking out an annual subscription.

Many of these titles are clickable links which lead to publishers’ websites or to other online demonstrations. Others link to Spotify – worth signing up for!
