Musical Heritage at Risk?

This just arrived in my mailbox courtesy of NPM, of all people.....

Martin Baker, Master of Music at London's Westminster Cathedral, argues that the musical heritage of the Catholic Church is in danger of being lost. Baker also contends that the practice of musical liturgy at Westminster Cathedral provides a model that deserves support from church leaders. Read his article, A Musical Heritage at Risk, that was recently published in the British Jesuit journal, The Tablet.

Thanks for the link. He's right on about starting at an early age and setting high standards.

Yeah, Brian, it was sent to all NPM members. It was at the bottom of an email we got yesterday afternoon. (The beginning was about the NPM Music Planning site and the Choral Anthem project)
