Why “Sacred” Music?

People often inquire as to how the music at Holy Mass is “selected.” The Most Rev. Alexander K. Sample, the present Archbishop of Portland in Oregon, and formerly the Bishop of Marquette, Michigan, wrote what is called a “Pastoral Letter” to the faithful of the Diocese of Marquette, while still the Bishop, there. You are encouraged to read the letter, and find out why the music at Holy Mass must indeed, be “sacred.”
