The recorded lecture was given on Tuesday 6/22/2010 at the CMAA Sacred Music Colloquium XX as one of the afternoon breakouts. The lecture description reads:
“This session will approach the sacred liturgy as the wellspring and matrix of all theology and examine liturgical chant within this context as the sung theology of the church.”
I’ll be attending the second and third sessions of this series throughout the week. Barring any mishaps, those lectures will be recorded and posted as well.
Thank you, Fr. Kirby, for your kind permission to record and distribute your lecture.
On a side note: The hymn you hear at the beginning is titled, “Sub Tuum Praesidium.”
We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
