Hear a fascinating discussion of the Catholic Publishing world and the process a composer might go through to get a piece published by one of the leading Catholic Music Publishers. This great company, over 75 years old, whose name is the Gregorian Institute of America (GIA) began in Pittsburgh PA and now is based Chicago. It is responsible for much of the great music sung in the church today. This episode’s guests have a unique role as parish musicians and as senior editors and composers to shape the scope of music sung in the liturgies of this ever changing church. Listen as they give their insight into the service music, choral music, and ethic music needed for the church.
