The Catholic choirmasters correspondence course consists of college-accredited lessons in sacred music and liturgy edited by Clifford A. Bennett and published by the Gregorian Institute of America, Toledo, Ohio, 1942-1945. The lessons may have been sent one by one, but have been gathered into a binder designed for them. Some lessons are missing. The course covers liturgy, liturgical aesthetics, Latin pronunciation, children's and boys' choirs, male choir training, polyphony, Gregorian chant, rhythm and chironomy, modality (Gregorian modes), Psalmody, and the Divine Office, and includes vocal supplements, exercises, review questions, and other educational apparatus.
The Gregorian Institute of America (GIA) publishes sacred music and texts that support music education.
