“In the 17th century came the crushing blow which destroyed the beauty of all Breviary hymns. Pope Urban VIII (d. 1644) was a Humanist. In a fatal moment he saw that the hymns do not all conform to the rules of classical prosody.”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

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.
