Catholic Alphabet Letter O

That Catholic Alphabet Handwriting Program

The Letter O Is for Organ

FAITH FOCUS:  The Organ

 

COPYWORK PASSAGE:

 

The organ is one of the oldest instruments used in churches  for religious celebrations dating back to the early 800s.  It is quite fitting to play the organ at the beginning and ending of Mass.

 

POSSIBLE COMPLEMENTARY THEMES:

 

  • What is an organ?
  • How does an organ work?
  • Discuss wind instruments.
  • Discuss how organs have been incorporated into the celebration of the Mass over the centuries.
  • In which parts of the Mass could one use or play an organ (entrance procession, recession, Liturgy of the Word)?
  • Research a variety of hymns.
  • Have children select a favorite hymn to use for copywork this week.
  • Learn to sing a new hymn as a class or group.
  • Research the lives of composers who wrote sacred music such as J.C. Bach, Elgar, Dvorak, Haydn, Liszt, Mozart, Scarlatti, Schumann, Stravinsky, Verdi, Vivaldi, Beethoven, and many others.
  • Use our Little Timeline of Composers printable to create a timeline of musicians who composed sacred music.
  • Spend some time listening to a variety of compositions of the Holy Mass.  Compare them to the current translation and settings of the Mass.
  • Discuss some of the religious celebrations in the Medieval time period forward.
  • Do a Saint study individually or as a class on St. Cecilia, the patron Saint of music and musicians.
