I try to keep my work and my politics separated for the most part. There are a number of reasons for this, most of which are obvious and not worth mentioning. Every now and then, however, I break the rule. This is one of those times. Those who come to this blog for the political and more general commentary might well have no interest in this whatsoever, although I do take some potshots at certain kinds of political organizations which you might enjoy. The topic of conversation, however, is church music, which I try to spruce up with what a friend of mine calls an “incisive” writing style. That’s putting it nicely, I think.
In any case, I just finished re-reading Thomas Day’s famous book Why Catholics Can’t Sing, and I have documented a metanoia which I underwent here.
