“In 1854 John Mason Neale co-founded an order of women dedicated to nursing the sick. Many Anglicans in his day, however, were very suspicious of anything suggestive of Roman Catholicism. Only nine years earlier, John Henry Newman had encouraged Catholic practices in Anglican churches and had ended up becoming a Roman Catholic. This encouraged the suspicion that anyone such as Neale was an agent of the Vatican, assigned to destroy Anglicanism by subverting it from within. Once, Neale was attacked and mauled at a funeral of one of the Sisters. From time to time unruly crowds threatened to stone him or to burn his house.”

The Reason for Choir — Paul Mealor
published 27 August 2016 by Andrew Leung

OME FRIENDS OF MINE shared a video entitled “The Reason for Choir” on Facebook today. In this video, Welsh composer, Paul Mealor, talks about the importance of arts and music. Towards the beginning of the video, he gives his opinion on sacred choral music specifically. This video is definitely worth watching. And by the way, Paul Mealor is the composer of the Ubi Caritas performed at the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011.
