"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

A second class of tunes—which can also be said with certainty to fall under the profane—are those which are written in the style of secular songs and which, if heard without the words, would be recognized only as such. In these, as a rule, the devotional gives way to the sentimental, cheerfulness to levity and oftentimes vulgarity, while not even an attempt is made to give a serious or dignified musical expression to the sentiments embodied in the words of the hymn. Not the least objectionable feature of some of these tunes is a jingling piano accompaniment quite unsuited to the church organ.
— Preface to a Roman Catholic Hymnal (1896)

Sacred Music of Nicholas Wilton & Paintings of Fra Angelica (Lovely Video)
published 12 March 2014 by Corpus Christi Watershed

E HAVE RECEIVED notice of the following beautiful video by Nicholas Wilton (see below) and a personal message from the composer:

“My intention in writing sacred choral music is firstly for the adoration of God and the veneration and glorification of Our Blessed Lady. Secondly it is to help raise minds and hearts to God in the sacred Catholic liturgy. In these troubled times where very few Catholics have sacraments my hope is that my sacred choral music might help Catholics against the assaults of the devil. If my little sub-creations can help even one soul, I should be happy.”
