IKE MANY OF YOU, I read voraciously about sacred music, liturgy, and music in general. I remember years ago reading through a 350-page book by David Dubal in about two hours with 100% comprehension. The subject of the book was pianists, so I just ate it up. On the other hand, if I spent two hours reading a book on physics, I probably wouldn’t even get through four pages . . . More on this in a minute.
In the past, I’ve written about the phenomenon of the brain becoming “aware” of something, and then seeing it out of the blue within 24 hours. If you want to read my articles about this, Google “Learn A New Word, See It Within 24 Hours” plus my name.
Well, here’s another example. A few days ago (on Sunday) I composed a blog entry where I spoke about LIGHT as an analogy for God’s Love, and the broader theme of LIGHT in the Liturgy. Within 48 hours, what do I read in Sacred Music (1987, Vol. 114 No. 2)?
Speaking of “love of God,” it illustrates how unclear the English genitive case is. “Love of God” could mean God’s love or the love we have for God.
