About Parish Music

The parish recognises the integral role of music in worship and takes very seriously the injunction of the Second Vatican Council that the Church’s musical heritage be “preserved and fostered with great care.” Every effort is made to strive for good standards of musical performance within the liturgy in order to aid people’s prayer and devotion. A wide range of musical styles is used; Languages that can be heard in the music of the liturgy include English (most often) as well as Latin and South African vernacular Black languages. The organ occupies a prominent place in parish liturgies, with repertoire drawn chiefly from the many style periods of the Catholic musical tradition. The practice of organ improvisation can also be heard on a frequent basis.
