“Since the ability of Francisco Guerrero is now abundantly known to all […] he shall henceforth act as master of the boys so long as: ( 1) he must teach them to read, write, and to sing the responsories, versicles, antiphons, lessons, and kalends, and other parts of divine service; (2) he shall teach them plainchant, harmony, and counterpoint, his instruction in counterpoint to include both the art of adding a melody to a plainsong and to an already existing piece of polyphonic music; (3) he shall always clothe them decently and properly, see that they wear good shoes, and ensure that their beds are kept perfectly clean; (4) he shall feed them the same food that he himself eats and never take money from them for anything having to do with their services in church or their musical instruction…” [cont’d]

We Require Your Financial Assistance!

90900 Sacred Victim ATERSHED is a 100% volunteer organization; none of us is paid. We find ourselves in need of immediate financial assistance, otherwise we cannot continue. We want to keep CCW resources free of charge forever; but we have expenditures. 1

1   Whenever we have the funding, we try to give back. For example, during 2017 we gave scholarship money to carefully-vetted musicians who needed help to attend a very important conference on church music.
