On 12 March 1908, Feast of St. Gregory the Great, the complete publication of the “Graduale” was issued by the Vatican Press. That very day, Dom Pothier solemnly presented the first copy to the Holy Father. Pius X wished to be the first to see the new book; he opened it at random, at page 128 of the supplement “pro aliquibus locis”—the Introit of the new Feast of Our lady of Lourdes. The Pope sang it with perfect taste to the last note.

New Microphone
published 3 January 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

I WAS GIVEN a new microphone by a generous person, and here’s a test recording. For years, I’ve been making sacred music recordings—but from now on I will use this microphone.

Can you hear the difference? I am excited!

Please do let me know your thoughts in the Facebook combox—thanks!


I hope to replace all the recordings on the Goupil Website now that I have this better microphone—but that could take quite a while!
