“I still haven’t made up my mind whether I shall publish it all. Some people are so humorless, so uncharitable, and so absurdly wrong-headed, that one would probably do far better to relax and enjoy life than worry oneself to death trying to instruct or entertain a public which will only despise one’s efforts, or at least feel no gratitude for them. Most readers know nothing about canon law. Many regard it with contempt and find everything heavy going that isn’t completely lowbrow. Some are so grimly serious that they disapprove of all humor. Others come to different conclusions every time they stand up or sit down. They seize upon your publications, as a wrestler seizes upon his opponent’s hair, and use them to drag you down, while they themselves remain quite invulnerable, because their barren pates are completely bald, so there’s nothing for you to get hold of.”
— St. Thomas More to Peter Gilles, 1516

More From The New Microphone
published 23 January 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

The previous Introit recording for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany was really terrible, so I replaced it using the new microphone we have obtained:


The idea behind these recordings is to give a clear rendering of pitches and rhythm. Then the choirmaster can “shape” the phrases and refine them.

I hope to replace any recordings on Goupil that are really awful—but this won’t happen overnight. By the way, this Introit is repeated many times, depending on how many Sundays occur after Epiphany.
