A review of music written using Latin texts in service of the liturgy of the Catholic Church encompassing music written in all periods with a concentration on contemporary composers.
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Welcome to the first posting of Jubal's Review. It's purpose is to become a place where the work of composers writing for the Latin liturgies may become better known and their compositions promoted. Over time we hope to put together a team of writers covering published music, recordings, interviews, and articles pertinent to the topic. One of the first tasks will be to create a 'links list' of living composers. If you are one of these people please feel free to leave a comment. The only thing we ask is that you are actively involved in writing either (a) sacred Latin music or (b) organ music suitable to the traditional liturgies. To answer a question in advance; Jubal is the earliest mention of a musician in Sacred Scripture (Genesis 4).
