"when religious texts are sung well, greater religious devotion is inspired: souls are moved...and with a warmer devotion kindled to piety than if they are not so sung." - St. Augustin (from Confessions)
"To sing is to pray twice."
While St. Augustin was wary of the consequences of improper use of music in the liturgy, he also was aware of music's ability to draw the faithful into closer devotion to God: (Regarding the hymns sung in the church of St. Ambrose) “The music surged in my ears, truth seeped into my heart, and feelings of devotion overflowed” - St. Augustin (Conf. 9.6)
At St. Augustin's Church we seek to serve the liturgy and bring adoration to the Most Blessed Sacrament through music.
