Audio for Father John Saward’s lecture, 10/11/2014: The Poverty of the Church and the Beauty of the Liturgy

Father John Saward of Oxford University addressed a full house for the opening lecture of 2014-15 Art of the Beautiful series. Father’s lecture began with the question: “Is there a place for liturgical beauty in what Pope Francis calls ‘the Church that is poor and for the poor’?”


Here is the audio for Father Saward’s lecture. Enjoy!

As always, we thank our series co-sponsors at the Thomistic Institute and our hosts at the Catholic Center at NYU. Looking forward to seeing you at the next lecture on Saturday, November 8th.

Annual Solemn Requiem Mass – 6 November 2014 (Duarte Lobo à 8)

Our annual Solemn Requiem Mass, co-sponsored with the New York Purgatorial Society and the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny, will be offered next Thursday, November 6th at the Church of St. Agnes in Manhattan.

The Mass will be offered for our deceased family members, friends, and fellow artists. Please send names of intentions in an email marked “Requiem Mass intentions” to catholicartistssociety@gmail.com. All the names will be given to the priest offering the Mass, and placed in the catafalque.

The Schola Cantorum of St. Agnes, led by James Wetzel, will sing Duarte Lobo’s glorious Renaissance setting for 8 voices, Missa pro Defunctis (Requiem à 8). This is a rare opportunity to hear this treasure of sacred polyphony in the service of the liturgy for which it was composed.
