"I am of the opinion, to be sure, that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It’s impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it suddenly declares that what until now was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden, and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent. Can it be trusted any more about anything else? Won’t it proscribe tomorrow what it prescribes today?"
— Pope Benedict XVI, writing in 1997

RISTOTLE A. ESGUERRA has served in the Diocese of Madison since 2009 as music director at the churches of St. Mary, Pine Bluff and St. Ignatius, Mount Horeb, and as the chant instructor to the Cistercian Nuns of Valley of Our Lady Monastery, Prairie du Sac.

A passionate advocate of sung liturgy, he also serves as a cantor at the sung Masses celebrated by the Diocesan Vicar General — one of which is sung in Latin, the other in English. He has studied and sung Gregorian chant extensively since 2001, and its influence is reflected in his vernacular liturgical compositions for the Mass: ordinaries, responsorial psalms, and proper antiphons.
