“In spite of what it is currently called, the music of these songs is not modern: this musical style is not new, but has been played in the most profane places and surroundings (cabarets, music halls, often for more or less lascivious dances with foreign names). The people are led on to rock or swing. They all feel an urge to dance about. That sort of “body language” is certainly alien to our Western culture, unfavorable to contemplation and its origins are rather suspect. Most of the time our congregations, which already find it hard not to confuse the crochets and the quavers in a 6/8 bar, do not respect the rhythm; then one no longer feels like dancing, but with the rhythm gone to pieces, the habitual poorness of the melodic line becomes all the more noticeable.”
— Unnamed choirmaster (Northern France) circa 1986

N CELEBRATION of the imminent release of the Saint Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal we have released this historic film. Campion and Newman were both Catholic priests, brilliant scholars, and prominent converts from Anglicanism. Newman’s poetry and that of his Oratorian confrères are emphasized in our book. Composer Kevin Allen has composed original hymn settings exclusively for the Campion hymnal.
