One or two singers can effectively guide and proclaim the Word of God in the psalm sung between the readings. These are the two most important things a cantor can do in order to enhance worship.
The words of Saint Augustine should not be forgotten: “Do not allow yourselves to be offended by the imperfect while you strive for the perfect.”
Being a Cantor does not need to be an every week commitment,
although several weeks per month is normal.
