On-Site Study of the Process for Teaching of Catholic Mass Ceremony Music at Chongqing Benevolence Hall

Shuang SHEN


Founded in 1900, Chongqing Yuzhong Benevolence Hall is a Catholic church with a history of more than one hundred years. It has experienced the development stages of missionary hospital, nunnery and vocational school for nurses, and in December 2001, it was transformed into Benevolence Nursing Home. Every Sunday, the Church would hold mass ceremonies in the same manner and with the same music as Catholic mass ceremonies, thus playing the role of missionary education on surrounding residents and church members. The paper will explore the process for teaching of its ceremony music, and analyze the process for teaching of the ceremony music and its particularity.
