Interview with Paul Ford

Composer Paul Ford, who works with the Liturgical Press, has long been an advocate of using the propers of the Mass as the basis of ritual song. His new collection pushes the paradigm of unaccompanied, vocal singing of the propers to new areas that includes ordinary chants, dialogues, and all the propers of the Mass, to be sung in unison or parts. He graciously agreed to an interview this morning.
