Sacred Music America does not guarantee that all the music of every service at the parishes and congregations listed is consistent with its standards. If you plan to visit any of them, call ahead of time to ask details about the program for the specific liturgy you expect to attend.

A great many parishes and congregations maintain high standards across the country. The Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran and Reformed sections offer a few examples worthy of attention at this time. Others will be added to the listings, which we plan to expand and enlarge.
