Singing Bilingually in Spanish and English: A Vision and Resources for Singing Together on the Journey of Faith

In North America, we have a splendid opportunity in the years and decades ahead to learn to sing bilingually, transcending a language divide in ways that help us all learn and grow together as we discover scripturally inspired songs from a variety of contexts and cultures.

Bilingual music is needed in both cities and rural communities, and in every part of North America, both south and north, both east and west. It can include bilingual versions of deeply loved hymn texts, as well as newly written music and popular coritos. Come explore a sampling of old and new music that can be used in congregations, campus ministries, seminaries or divinity schools, summer camps, nursing homes, parachurch organizations, denominational meetings or local ecumenical or cross-denominational contexts—music that is being gathered for a forthcoming bilingual resource book developed by CICW and GIA Publications.
