“Today the Church has made a big mistake, turning the clock back 500 years with guitars and popular songs. I don't like it at all. Gregorian Chant is a vital and important tradition of the Church and to waste this—by having guys mix religious words with profane, Western songs—is hugely grave, hugely grave.”
— Maestro Ennio Morricone (10 Sept 2009)

Triumph Beyond Belief … Beyond Imagination
published 28 June 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

NEVER DREAMED any music conference could be this powerful. The presentations have been utterly inspiring, the facilities are great, the conductors are superb, and the camaraderie is out of this world. May God be praised. In a world filled with negativity, complaining, and hand–wringing, FSSP.la is doing something positive and marvelous. May God be praised.

Listening to all these experts—Dr. Calabrese, Dr. Buchholz, Fr. Popplewell, Dr. Tappan, Chris Avendaño, and so forth—I remember why I got into music in the first place!

I am so inspired, and the week is only half over!

The days are EXTREMELY LONG … but we can’t stop, because it’s so amazing.
