Austrian composer Anton Bruckner, a devout Catholic, was something of an odd man, but the beauty of his innovative and monumental sacred music deserves to be unpacked and considered by Catholics today.
The language of beauty continues to preach the truth of Catholicism to all nations; because of that, we ought to see composers like Tallis as contributing to the Church’s continued charism of evangelism.
Hope-filled in its conclusion, a new book offers the Catholic community a fresh look at current issues, addressing them with scholarly and thoughtful argumentation, and peaceful and commonsense rhetoric.
