I like to think he's chatting with Auinas and Augustine

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Real American Catholic Heritage

Music composed during the Baroque period (contemporaneously with Bach-ish) in America, in California/Mexico at the Missions, so it is influenced by European and Spanish colonies' folk music. But still American, as it was composed by either natives or children/grandchildren of colonists.) (YES, THEY ARE ALL MEN SINGING!) I can't figure out if I am more in awe of the sopranos or the basses. haha

Lauda Sion

What happened to our music???????????????????????????????????????

Happy New Year

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards. Unless a man be born again, he shall by no means enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

-- G. K. Chesterton, "January One" from Lunacy and Letters
