“In the 17th century came the crushing blow which destroyed the beauty of all Breviary hymns. Pope Urban VIII (d. 1644) was a Humanist. In a fatal moment he saw that the hymns do not all conform to the rules of classical prosody.”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

VIDEO • I Am An Elitist
published 11 October 2014 by Aurelio Porfiri

AFFIRM AND DEFEND the elitist nature of sacred art. It is not that we want to exclude people; rather we want to conduct them onto higher peaks where—despite our deep indignity—sometimes God allows us to abide.

Please examine CHORALIFE, an exciting new global publisher,
established in 2013 by Aurelio Porfiri, to make high quality music
affordable and readily available to all parts of the world.
