He may be held accountable for the immediate rendering of the music, showing the course of the melody by movements of the hand(s) (cheironomia), similar to a conductor."Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantor_(Christianity)"

4Kelly Fanning = "People in Catholic churches bow toward the altar because it is where the sacrifice of the Mass takes place. You will also see them genuflect facing the tabernacle, which is where the real presence of Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, is present in the Holy Eucharist (the consecrated host). In this Church the Tabernacle is behind the altar, but in some Catholic churches the Tabernacle is located elsewhere. Genuflection is the lowering of the right knee to the ground in reverence for the presence of God."
