"To the extent that the new sacred music is to serve the liturgical celebrations of the various churches, it can and must draw from earlier forms — especially from Gregorian chant — a higher inspiration, a uniquely sacred quality, a genuine sense of what is religious."

Corpus Christi Watershed is five years old today!!!

Corpus Christi Watershed is five years old today.

Sometime in 2009, I learned that the State of Texas officially chose to recognize Corpus Christi Watershed as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation on October 19th, 2006: the Feast of Sts. Isaac Jogues, John de Brébeuf, & companions, martyrs.

This date was not chosen by us. I am not kidding.

This is . . . a truly amazing thing, when one considers all the works and websites and scores we had already dedicated to Sts. Isaac Jogues, John de Brébeuf, René Goupil, Jean de Lalande, Charles Garnier, Antoine Daniel, Gabriel Lalemant, and Noël Chabanel. (Read more)

The Gospel Acclamation for today is: “Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.” With God’s help, we hope to continue doing just that!
