"Josef Gabriel Rheinberger and the Reform of Catholic Church Music" by Paul Weber

Congratulations to CMAA member and Summer Colloquium 2014 faculty member Paul Weber on the publication of Part 1 of his essay, "Josef Gabriel Rheinberger and the Reform of Catholic Church Music," in the October 2014 issue of The American Organist. It is a fascinating portrait of both the composer and the state of 19th century church music.

Those of you who have subscriptions to the American Guild of Organists' journal are encouraged to head for page 48.  If you're not an AGO member, look for the journal at the local public or university library.

I felt infinitely smarter after reading this and can hardly wait for Part 2.

Bravo, Paul!
