When you consider that the greatest hymns ever written—the plainchant hymns—are pushing the age of eight hundred and that the noble chorale hymn tunes of Bach date from the early eighteenth century, then what is the significance of the word “old” applied to “Mother at Thy Feet Is Kneeling”? Most of the old St. Basil hymns date from the Victorian era, particularly the 1870s and 1880s.

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.
