CHURCH MUSIC SUNDAY

For centuries, the Introit (a small portion of a psalm text chanted at the beginning of the liturgy) for the Fourth Sunday of Easter was from Psalm 98, “Sing to the Lord a new song” (“Cantate Domino”) This day was often known as “Cantate Sunday” and, in some traditions, became a day to celebrate music in the church. The Introit no longer exists in today’s Lutheran worship. However, since the publication of Lutheran Book of Worship in 1978, many congregations have continued to celebrate a "Church Music Sunday" around this time of year.

Since this Sunday often falls near the end of the choir season, some congregations use this opportunity to publicly thank all who make music in their congregation. This usually takes the form of festive music and specific prayers.
