"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

Why do we never sing “De Spiritu Sancto” (St. Athenogenes) in our churches? There are a dozen translations in English verse. Where could anyone find a better evening hymn than this, coming right down from the catacombs? Our hymnbooks know nothing of such a treasure as this, and give us pages of poor sentiment in doggerel lines by some tenth-rate modern versifier.
— Rev’d Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)
When A Choir Just Can't Read Music
published 28 March 2011 by Corpus Christi Watershed

What should you do when you have singers who don’t read music?
The answer is simple!

Send them to Matthew J. Curtis’ new website:    http://choraltracks.com/

Matthew has created an amazing website which not only provides recordings with scrolling scores, but also special and powerful training videos for each vocal part.

His website is truly beautiful, and his singing exquisite. This new work of Matthew J. Curtis will forever change Church music.
