The November/December issue of Lay Witness magazine explores the theme of Catholic culture. Undoubtedly there are remarkable signs of hope and renewal in our culture at large, and within the Church, due in part to the encouragement of Pope Benedict, much of the same can be said.
In the discipline of Sacred Music, one need look no further than to James Macmillan, the Scottish composer responsible for creating a new Mass setting for the Holy Father’s pastoral visit to England in 2010. Today Catholic World Report spotlights Macmillan is this in-depth article. And, with Advent just around the corner, Macmillan’s stunning piece “Veni, Veni Emmanuel” is highly recommended. Purchase this and other selections from Macmillan at iTunes and other music providers.
