Clare at Birmingham Oratory

Clare, our Musical Director went to the conference at Birmingham Oratory on Liturgical Formation in the Liturgy, the brainchild of Fr Guy Nichols, read her account here.

Basically, it all seems to be about getting back to Sacrosanctum Concillium and to authentic Catholic music. There are lots of interesting snippets: Mgr Burnham relates practical experiences, Jeremy de Satge teaching children chant, Mgr Andrew Wadsworth, on “Towards a new culture of Liturgical Music.”.
I am sure that the various papers will appear on-line in some form but I hope Clare's account will wet your appetite a little.
