“One would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.”
— Ven. Pope Pius XII (20 November 1947)

ERONICA BRANDT holds a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Certificate IV in Breastfeeding Education. Her mother was a keen member of her local parish choir and singing was a part of everyday life. Her grandfather had a fondness for the Latin Mass, as well as a keen interest in apologetics. Somehow this mixed together to bring her to the periphery of the choir of the Maternal Heart of Mary Church, Lewisham. (maternalheart.org)

The Engineering degree introduced her to an arcane typesetting system called TeX, which turned out to be useful for typing up Gregorian chant. Soon Veronica ended up typing music for different groups and thereby learning much about Gregorian chant.

She lives in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia with her husband Peter and five children. More about her adventures in homeschooling, knitting and her husband’s drawings can be found at http://brandt.id.au.
