“The authority of the Pope is not unlimited. It is at the service of Sacred Tradition. Still less is any kind of general ‘freedom’ of manufacture, degenerating into spontaneous improvisation, compatible with the essence of faith and liturgy. The greatness of the liturgy depends—we shall have to repeat this frequently—on its lack of spontaneity.”
— Josef Cardinal Ratzinger (2000)

Te Deum Laudámus
published 31 December 2015 by Andrew Leung

APPY NEW YEAR! And Happy Solemnity! According to the tradition, a plenary indulgence is granted, under the usual conditions, to those who chant or recite the Te Deum on New Year’s Eve. Here is a beautiful setting of Te Deum by Herbert Howells to start the year 2016.

I hope you enjoy the piece sung by the Schola Cantorum Franciscana, accompanied by Nicholas Will, under the direction of Dr. Paul Weber.
