“I have, on the other hand, retained several more or less traditional tunes, absolutely valueless and without merit from a musical point of view, but which seem to have become a necessity if a book is to appeal—as I hope this one will—to the varied needs of various churches.”
— A. Edmonds Tozer (1905)

Dom Gajard on Vernacular Adaptations & Pius XII Psalter
published 4 December 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

FOUND THE FOLLOWING letter engaging. It was written by Dom Gajard, perhaps the greatest Gregorian conductor of all time. It was translated by a Jesuit priest named Paul Callens, who taught Gregorian chant in Corpus Christi, TX, for many years. Click here to view a picture of Fr. Callens conducting his Schola.
