Episode 39—Composing Liturgical Music That’s Noble, Accessible... and Sacred—Paul Jernberg
Paul Jernberg is a composer of sacred music and director of the Magnificat Institute, which offers education in the patrimony of Catholic liturgical music. He tells Thomas about his career, including an interesting digression about gospel music relative to Catholic liturgy, the criterion of “noble accessibility” in liturgical music, and what Roman Catholic composers can learn from the ancient Eastern chant traditions.
This episode contains selections from Jernberg’s Mass of St. Philip Neri, used with permission. If you would like to hear more episodes with music throughout, please send Thomas feedback at [email protected]
