The representative Protestant collection, entitled “Hymns, Ancient and Modern”—in substance a compromise between the various sections of conflicting religious thought in the Establishment—is a typical instance. That collection is indebted to Catholic writers for a large fractional part of its contents. If the hymns be estimated which are taken from Catholic sources, directly or imitatively, the greater and more valuable part of its contents owes its origin to the Church.
— Orby Shipley (1884)

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?
