Anything related to music used in Catholic worship is appropriate here, including schedules, worship planning, publishers, performers, history, and so on. But there are several more specific related categories that should be considered first, where appropriate. Chant--Gregorian chant or plainsong--has its own category. Several types of music have a more (catholic-not-Catholic) interest and thus their own categories: hymns, carols, classical music.

Catholic Encyclopedia: Hymnody and Hymnology
Hymnody means exactly "hymn song", but as the hymn-singer as well as the hymn-poet are included under (hymnodos), so we also include under hymnody the hymnal verse or religious lyric. Hymnology is the science of hymnody or the historico-philogical investigation and aesthetic estimation of hymns and hymn writers.
