CD: The Essential Tallis Scholars

If you have just come from a Mass in which "Leaping The Mountains" or "Gather Us In" was sung, restore your sanity by listening to this wonderful CD of sacred polyphony: The Essential Tallis Scholars. It contains polyphonic works by Palestrina, Victoria, Tallis, Byrd, and other sane composers of sacred music.

For more Palestrina, this writer recommends this CD as his favorite. And it is indeed lovely.

There are some lovely books listed on Fr. John McCloskey's A Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan.

The Godparent Book

Are you a godparent? I'm a proud godparent of a 13-year old boy, and when I was asked to become a godparent 13 years ago, I had little idea about how to be one. I purchased this slim volume and it has a variety of interesting ideas for the new godparent: The Godparent Book, by Elaine Ramshaw. Check it out!
