But, at times, loathing the Traddies. A blog where we are fairly sure that Good taste is not always nearest to Godliness and that the cut of your maniple has little bearing on your orthodoxy.

I've tried in several ways, over the years, to promote the work of living composers of sacred Latin music. Largely I think I've failed. It seems that whilst there are plenty of publishers and websites promoting the work of others the traditional Catholic composer has been pretty much left to fend for themselves. To try and redress the balance I'm 'piloting' Jubal's Review which, although interested in all Latin text liturgical music, will concentrate on current composers, and their work, through reviews, interviews, short articles and links to the pages that these brave souls maintain. I'm not particularly attached to the format, or the name for that matter, and any suggestions and contributions would be very welcome. Because of the legal issues in music copyright the comments will be moderated. I also hope to build a team of contributors for those areas in which I have little expertise. You can find the page here.
