Catholic musicians gathered to blog about liturgy and life
Purchased the whole set over Christmas. Very "general audience" but quite well done. The Sixteen is one of my favorite groups.
Very "general audience" indeed… talking almost an hour about organum and never mentioning it't not stand-alone music but elaborate intonations for plainchant antiphones, oh well…
For those of us in the "general audience," the series is absolutely brilliant. It's introduced me to a whole musical world I wished I'd been told about earlier. Here's hoping that world will visit my parish soon, especially the part from 13th century Paris.
The problem with this is graduale&alleluia in organum setting takes about 20-30 min I think 😉 I'm studying medieval and rennaisance music and we've been doing this stuff regularly, but I haven't dared to use it at our parish yet.
