“Some of our younger parish clergy read their sermons. This should not be done except for some very special reason. The priest who is not capable of preparing and delivering a brief, clear instruction on Catholic teaching to his people is not fit to be in parish work. The people as a rule do not want to listen to a sermon reader.”
— Archbishop of Baltimore (9 July 1929)

Spectacular Video: Porfiri Conducts Requiem For Parents In China
published 16 September 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

SENSATIONAL INTERVIEW IN ENGLISH & ITALIAN by Teledifusão de Macau on Aurelio Porfiri’s concert with Santa Rosa de Lima English Secondary Choir (21 February 2014) featuring Porfiri’s Missa Pro Defunctis in honor of his parents:


A small excerpt from the video (comments by Mæstro Porfiri):

“As you notice, they sing the whole concert, seventeen pieces, all by memory. And you can imagine … I mean, I know Latin but they don’t know it. So, for them to memorize all these pieces—and also the music in four & six parts—is quite difficult. They are really amazing.”
