Restoring Sacred Music - Post Vatican II

February 9, 2021

This week we speak with one of Australia's most distinguished Church Musicians, Sir. Bernard Kirkpatrick .KSS regarding the subject of how we can restore the regular use of sacred music such as Gregorian chant and Polyphony in most parishes today. He doesn't only go into the subject in a detailed way through the documents of Vatican II.


He proceeds to provide the listeners with very practical resolutions on how they can take action in the parish and slowly but surely introduce it into the life of the community, trying to avoid as many obstacles as possible.


Bernard is currently director of St Patrick's Cathedral Choir, Parramatta.
