"In accord with no. 55 of the instruction of the Congregation of Rites on music in the liturgy (March 5, 1967), the Conference of Bishops has determined that vernacular texts set to music composed in earlier periods may be used in liturgical services even though they may not conform in all details with the legitimately approved versions of liturgical texts (November, 1967). This decision authorizes the use of choral and other music in English when the older text is not precisely the same as the official version."

Video • Wilko Brouwers
published 18 July 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

EARS AGO, CCWatershed produced a whole series of videos on the CMAA. One of them—dedicated to Wilko Brouwers—I cannot remember ever posting to the blog:


Sometimes it’s hard to remember what we’ve posted. If you’ve seen this already, please forgive me. Maestro Brouwers will always have a special place in my heart because he, too, is interested in the mysterious “white notes” embedded into Abbot Pothier’s Editio Vaticana.

Can anyone identify the composer of this piece? Is it William Byrd?
