“The main place should be given, all things being equal, to gregorian chant, as being proper to the roman Liturgy. Other kinds of sacred music, in particular polyphony, are in no way excluded, provided that they correspond to the spirit of the liturgical action and that they foster the participation of all the faithful.”
— 2011 GIRM, §41 (Roman Missal, 3rd Edition)

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.
