"As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people — whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter."
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler (1997)

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.
