Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

“Let God Arise, and Let His Enemies Be Scattered”

We will be commencing on our next leg of “Everything English Month” this afternoon. The featured music will be by the famous English/German composer Handel, whose grasp of sacred choral music, be it Protestant or Catholic, was absolutely majestic.

And, of course, we mustn’t forget that we listen to Handel’s Messiah every year at Christmas time. We’ll explore some lesser-known parts of this famous work.

Also included will be portions from his coronation anthems and selections from his “Music for the Chapel Royal.” I hope to have these up by around three o’clock today – if they’re not up, I apologize.
