If you love Sacred Music...

... you have got to watch this series.

Many of my parishioners are experiencing a sense of grief just now. I am going through an emotional roller coaster. Watching this programme about Brahms and Bruckner (available until 9th April on the BBC iplayer) harmonised with all that is happening just now. Watch it and listen to it and see how these two men, one with not much faith in God but with faith in his music, the other a devout Catholic who hoped that God would consider his music and treat him with mercy, have composed music that touches the human heart and raises us to God.

It was just right for me at present.

Oh, and please pray for my dearly beloved parishioners.

As I have said before, I believe that no organisation does this sort of thing better than the BBC.


  1. Dear Fr. John - you haven't told the blogosphere why your parishioners are distraught (which they are)!


Please avoid being 'anonymous' if at all possible.
