OME FRIENDS OF MINE shared a video entitled “The Reason for Choir” on Facebook today. In this video, Welsh composer, Paul Mealor, talks about the importance of arts and music. Towards the beginning of the video, he gives his opinion on sacred choral music specifically. This video is definitely worth watching. And by the way, Paul Mealor is the composer of the Ubi Caritas performed at the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011.
A similar video featuring John Rutter can also be found on Youtube.
