Folks, if you want an example of how to revive church music, look no further. (Seriously, watch the whole thing.)
The Extraordinary Music Workshop, run by the Polish Dominican Liturgical Centre, has got it all: devout youth, a rich expression of a deep cultural patrimony, excellent instruction, tons of energy…
It makes for a great time and great liturgical music, from what the trailer shows.
THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF THING WE NEED MORE OF. Hopefully they will consider doing it every year, or even establishing a full conservatory. Maybe this year’s World Youth Day, which is being held in Krakow, will bring the grace to inspire such an endeavor.
