Denise La Giglia and Anna Belle O’Shea have created a liturgical flutist’s “bible” that will answer all your questions regarding basic techniques, improvisation, and the liturgical function of a pastoral musician. The first of its kind, The Liturgical Flutist combines a flute method book with a liturgical textbook and is intended for use by all pastoral ministers.
Over 70 years of collected experiences are bound within. The book is divided into three main sections and each deals with a different stage of development and skill. There is a spiritual component to each chapter that encourages personal conversion and faith formation as well. Section 1 is for the novice and covers the fundamentals; section 2 expands into more information on the ministry of playing at liturgy and beyond, while the final section focuses on improvisation and spontaneous playing as an instrumental prayer.
This comprehensive book is sure to transform any player, volunteer, or professional, into an effective, sensitive, and knowledgeable liturgical instrumentalist.
