About this blogger:
"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)

Giovanni Doni is known for having changed the name of note “Ut,” renaming it “Do.” He convinced his contemporaries to make the change by arguing that 1) “Do” is easier to pronounce than “Ut,” and 2) “Do” is an abbreviation for “Dominus,” the Latin word for the Lord, Who is the tonic and root of the world. There is much academic speculation that Giovanni Doni also wanted to imprint himself into musical canon in perpetuity because “Do” is also ulteriorly an abbreviation for his family name.
— Giovanni Battista Doni died in 1647AD

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.”
