“The main place should be given, all things being equal, to gregorian chant, as being proper to the roman Liturgy. Other kinds of sacred music, in particular polyphony, are in no way excluded, provided that they correspond to the spirit of the liturgical action and that they foster the participation of all the faithful.”

The Most Sensitive Musical Instrument
published 6 July 2017 by Andrew Leung

ERE IS A VIDEO of Arvo Pärt’s commencement speech at St. Vladimir’s Seminary in 2014. This video shows how the composer is deeply rooted in the faith. He believes that one must prepare the soul before producing good music and the music will reflect how well one’s soul is. Human soul is the most sensitive musical instrument. This is definitely a video worth watching and reflecting on.
