Music: New directives concerning liturgical music

(Updated for incorrect information regarding dates.)

The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, in union with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and at the behest of the Holy Father, issued an instruction to Bishops' Conferences at the end of June. Just a few days ago, Bishop Serratelli (Paterson, NJ), the chairman of the US Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship, sent the US bishops s a letter (PDF) regarding the instruction's ramifications and implementation; the PDF also contains the instruction itself.
