Office Music Posts

In lieu of substantive content, I’ll point you to those who have it…

bls has discovered a cool music search tool and has been busily putting it to work. Here’s a first post on Office Hymns and mp3s; here’s a second.

On bls’s topic—the search for tunes that fit the Office Hymn texts—I’ve been intending for a while now to scan and post the hymnal of the Order of Julian of Norwich; Fr. John-Julian created a number of fresh translations and adaptations of the classical material and fit them to traditional tunes in square notation chant. Unfortunately, every time I think I have time to start on it something else intervenes…

Fr. Chris offers up a good review of this attractive—yet pricey—book.

Maybe if we beg nicely, Scott and others will add their wisdom to this topic as well…
