Liturgical music is some of the most beautiful and moving music ever created. It is the most meaningful and substantial because of its subject: the living and loving God Who created all things. This is why it touches us so deeply, and draws us into its mysterious and spiritual motion and depth.

There has been a renewed interest in sacred or liturgical music in recent years, and liturgical music is necessarily about the sacred. Liturgics, whether as liturgical worship, music, study or prayer, is but the offering back to God of our thanks and praise.
