Going to Church

Via Overgrown Path, here is James MacMillan on his recent experience with writing a new mass setting in connection with the papal visit to Britain. In reference to certain interactions with the church hierarchy, MacMillan writes:

In all their years of facilitating the commission of new music, Boosey and Hawkes had never dealt with such rudeness and shoddy behaviour.

Why am I not surprised?

There is a lot more to say about the state of Catholic church music, but I am late getting out to Mass, back with more soon.
