Sacred Music
Detail from The Ghent Altarpiece, Jan van Eyck 1432

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. (1 Corinthians: 4-6)

     St. Paul, in the well-known passage above, reminds the Corinthians that the Lord works through all of us in different ways.  In similar fashion, we all receive and understand in our own way as well. In my regular job as a teacher I’ve learned to employ a wide variety of approaches in order to reach the largest number of students.  In the Age of Covid I have even learned to make my own instructional videos, a skill which I have occasionally applied here when Vimeo didn’t already have a recording of a sacred music selection I wanted to share on the blog.

     It was in the spirit of offering different modes for different people that I began making podcasts of some of my posts last year.  I have just added a second channel for sacred music posts (which I have not previously recorded as podcasts). To date I have published Vivaldi’s “Laudamus Te” and Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus.”

     Please stop by the Podcast Page and let your ears do the work. Your eyes will thank you for the rest.
