Music also creates an atmosphere of reverence that we should adopt in mass. As the most distracted generation, it can be difficult for students’ minds to stay focused in the silence, rather than drifting off and away from the reason we attend mass in the first place. Music helps remind students of the reverence we should have before God and helps them concentrate on prayer and worship.
Additionally, hearing the choir sing at mass is one of the few opportunities students have to hear what they have been working so hard on. Many students struggle to find the time to attend choir concerts between extracurriculars and homework, and mass presents an opportunity to showcase their talent in front of the student body.
