“The Humanists abominated the rhythmical poetry of the Middle Ages from an exaggerated enthusiasm for ancient classical forms and meters. Hymnody then received its death blow as, on the revision of the Breviary under Pope Urban VIII, the medieval rhythmical hymns were forced into more classical forms by means of so-called corrections.”
— Father Clemens Blume, S.J.

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

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