“If he converses with the learned and judicious, he delights in their talent—if with the ignorant and foolish, he enjoys their stupidity. He is not even offended by professional jesters. With a wonderful dexterity he accommodates himself to every disposition. As a rule, in talking with women (even with his own wife) he is full of jokes and banter.”
— Erasmus on St. Thomas More (England's 1st lay Chancellor)

New Gregorian Chant Project Needs Your Support!
published 9 September 2013 by Guest Author

HANT is beautiful, stunning, transcendent. Yet do we really know how it sounded centuries ago? Can we, by carefully listening, appreciate the differences between the modes?

This new kickstarter project ( website ) hopes to provide an ancient yet novel response to both these questions. Rooted in the work of renowned chant director Wassim Sarweh, this album will present one hymn in each of the eight? modes, in order, sung according to his haunting interpretation of Medieval chant.

We only have a few days left, and we’re so far from our goal! Listen to the video and consider chipping in to help fund this unique take on our Catholic musical tradition.
