This book is fantastic. I use it in my children's choir rehearsals each week. Each lesson takes me 5-10 minutes. Each lesson is ridiculously short and quick, but the kids slowly and steadily build skills. After 5 weeks, they are already super comfortable with Gregorian chant! Thank you. :D

But instead of a sad ending, his story and Words With Wings has a very happy ending.

Wilko, through his deep study and understanding of Gregorian Chant combined with his wit and creativity, is able to lead children and adults away from the harmful effects of the popular music that has crept into the Catholic Church once again. Once again because this has happened over and over again throughout the history of the church as secular interests become more important and attractive to people and priests than worshiping in a sacred manner that reflects and preserves the reverence of the Mass.

Through his student and teacher's books here, he guides both students and teachers out of the maze of secular influences and uses the church year as a map to introduce sacred music back into the church during the time of reflection, Advent.

Many churches use Gregorian Chant now during Advent and Lent and as a result, the Mass suddenly seems more serious, God-centered, as we sing music to Him, not music about us and how we feel.

Musica Sacra, at www.musicasacra.com, is behind this and much more music and information to help you, be you a layman, priest, bishop. guide your flock.

Words With Wings in the excellent translation by Arlene Oost-Zinner can be the guide you need for your parish.

Review for other "Words with wings" book applies to this one as well. The books need to be treated as a set.The student workbook only makes sense given the teaching given from the instructors manual. The workbooks are wonderfully uncluttered because of the instructors manual absorbing the complexity that the teacher must understand. This is very beautiful if you plan on teaching young folks, or older folks for that matter how to sing gregorian chant. It is wonderful because it is tightly structured and meant to teach prayer and singing simultaneously.
