Music for the Holy Father's Visit to the Celtish Isles

A Dominican blogger at The New Liturgical Movement reports that James MacMillan, on of the finest liturgical composers working today, (and this is not to say that his oeuvre is limited to sacred music,) has been commissioned to write a new setting of the new translation of the Ordinary.

By the bishops of Scotland, England and Wales.

(When our bishops commission music, we get things like this.

MacMillan is a remarkable anomaly -- a real-deal serious composer who labors in the trenches, er, loft or a regular Catholic parish.
