“Unfortunately, on the one hand a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee into the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Lercaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Bugnini, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”
— Fr. Louis Bouyer, an important member of the Consilium

Telephone Conversation w/ Faculty
published 3 August 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

I WAS DELIGHTED to speak with two faculty members from the 2017 Sacred Music Symposium: Dr. Lucas Tappan and Fr. Dominic Popplewell, FSSP. You’re allowed to “listen in” during our conversation, if you so choose.

The phone signal from Australia was fairly strong!

We were all deeply moved, and wanted to take just a few minutes and call to mind some aspects we enjoyed during an unforgettable week.
