Update on new CCCB English-language hymnal "Music for Catholic Worship"

The preparations of the music and texts for Music for Catholic Worship are well underway. With the help of the professional engraving services from GIA Publications, together with the assistance of CCCB Publications, the majority of the hymns have already been sent by the National Liturgy Office to professional proofreaders. In addition, all Psalm settings have been received for both the Pew and Accompaniment editions, and also were sent out for proofreading. Many of the remaining hymn engravings are now ready for proofreading. As well, the engravings for the 10 Mass settings should follow shortly. An update on this information will be posted on the new CCCB website (soon to be launched), and updates will be regularly posted online throughout the rest of the production process.

Because of several unforeseen circumstances, however, there has been a production delay in the projected publication calendar. The new Canadian worship resource will not be available for Lent 2020 as had been estimated at the beginning of this project.

The date of publication will be announced later once contracts are finalized for printing and binding, and the schedule for printing and manufacturing determined.
