Seminarian Casual, the blog by students of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, presents a new series of podcasts each Wednesday where they talk with a guest about everything from the grassroots of their faith to the passions that drive their creativity and enterprises; in short, the things that make them who they are.

Below, SemCasual speaks with Father David Friel, a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, who is currently studying to receive his Licentiate in Sacred Liturgy at the Catholic University of America. Our focus is a discussion on sacred music within the liturgy, its purpose, its various forms, problems that one may encounter in a parish music program, and how to prepare for the duty of properly choosing liturgical music.
