“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)

“First Run Through” • Guerrero’s Kyrie
published 22 February 2018 by Jeff Ostrowski

HE DAYS WERE SO PACKED during last year’s Symposium, we had no time for videos. However, little tiny clips have been sent in from time to time. This one shows us singing Guerrero’s KYRIE for the very first time:

My favorite piece was the Sanctus, conducted so well by Dr. Calabrese. Those sacred melodies continued in my head for months afterward.
