by Richard R. Terry
The CMAA is pleased to present the 100th anniversary edition of Catholic Church Music. The author Richard R. Terry was the great English choirmaster, director of music at Westminster Cathedral, and polyphony scholar of the late 19th century. This is his primer on Catholic church music. It covers rubrics, makes a case for the old styles, explains what is wrong with contemporary music (in 1907!), provides a model for forming and training a choir, details the use of the organ, and provides fascinating historical detail to what happened to polyphony during the reign of Elizabeth. Scott Turkington considers this book to be the single most important short work on Catholic choral music. The pace is quick and the book is remarkably entertaining. This is an invaluable work from a world-class, world-historic genius in the Catholic tradition. This softcover book is 218 pages.
