    Caleb Brown talks about how Marshall McLuhan, Thomas Aquinas, and his

    Episode 69 - Paul Jernberg: How Can a Composer be Creative and Follow Divine Inspiration?

    Episode 69 - Paul Jernberg: How Can a Composer be Creative and Follow Divine Inspiration?

    I’m with composer Paul Jernberg once again. Our starting point is the following excerpt from Musicam Sacram and the following statement:
    Musicians will enter on this new work with the desire to continue that tradition which has furnished the Church, in her divine worship, with a truly abundant heritage. Let them examine the works of the past, their types and characteristics, but let them also pay careful attention to the new laws and requirements of the liturgy, so that "new forms may in some way grow organically from forms that already exist, and the new work will form a new part in the musical heritage of the Church, not unworthy of its past.
    How does a composer balance the new with the traditional, proscribed forms with invention? Paul gives us his approach.

    Episode 68 - Charlie Deist - Join us in a March for Eternal Life, and a new call for Chivalry

    This is a march in which we meditate upon the spiritual meaning of marching
    itself. It is exercise that is natural to us - walking - that is ordered to
    our ultimate end. I see the 50 miles as a symbol of Pentecost, the 50-day
    after Easter on which the Holy Spirit descended upon us. It is a call for
    conversion and Christian chivalry.

    Episode 67 - Paul Jernberg on How We Discern the Sacred in Music

    Paul Jernberg and I discuss in greater depth exactly what constitutes
    sacred music and how this corresponds to what the Church has said on the
    subject, particularly in the controversial encyclical, Musica Sacra (which
    is often used to justify rock bands in church! )
