Good day to all. Last night I attended a parish mission presentation given by Brother Michael O'Neill McGrath, OSFS. Brother Mickey has several books published here at WLP. He projects his artwork on a large screen during the presentation, telling stories and sharing his own deep faith and spirituality. I was inspired beyond measure. Mickey brought us to tears, to laughter, and to true conversion. If you have never seen Mickey's art, think about purchasing one of his books. Here are two I recommend: At the Name of Jesus; Blessed Art Thou. His book, Jesus A to Z, is terrific for children.
Well, I am going to step back into the musical style pool again this morning. A recent anonymous poster said this: "In other words, just because GIA (for example) offers a few chant pieces, that doesn't make up for all the music they offer that has been forbidden by the Church for liturgical use." As a publisher of music for the Roman Catholic Church, I cannot allow this kind of information, or misinformation, to float out there without issuing some kind of challenge. I am coming to the defense WLP's good friends at GIA. Can someone point me to the specific document or action taken by Church authorities wherein music offered by a publisher "has been forbidden by the Church for liturgical use"?
