"As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people — whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter."
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler (1997)

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?
