“I vividly remember going to church with him in Bournemouth. He was a devout Roman Catholic and it was soon after the Church had changed the liturgy (from Latin to English). My grandfather obviously didn't agree with this and made all the responses very loudly in Latin while the rest of the congregation answered in English. I found the whole experience quite excruciating, but my grandfather was oblivious. He simply had to do what he believed to be right.”

4001 Francisco Guerrero (composer) died 1599AD

Most CCW donations are spent on mundane items like website repairs, but whenever possible we try to promote artists. For example, there wasn’t a decent picture of Guerrero (a devout Catholic who died in 1599AD) so we commissioned the jaw-dropping painting you see above. It’s based on Pacheco’s version, created the year Guerrero died.

Corpus Christi Watershed is a 100% volunteer organization; none of us is paid.

Please consider donating $5.00 per month.
