Liturgical Decoder

Every organization or institution develops its own jargon, its own code or shorthand for complex ideas and operations. The Catholic Church is no different from other organizations in this respect, and pastoral musicians working in the Church even have their own jargon subset. To help newcomers sort through the code words, NPM has prepared a "Liturgical Decoder." Check out this new aid, and if you have other "code words" to add, send them to npmedit[at]npm[dot]org.
