The music most appropriate to liturgy, the author argues, is either that music or an elaboration on that music.Liturgical music is a special sort that lifts our hearts and minds ever upwards to the Heavens. The push is not so much for “restoration” but rather for an ideal, which is what Catholic musicians lack and desperately need.All proceeds go to scholarships to the Sacred Music Colloquium.< Less
