Talk on Way of Beauty, Lincoln, NE, August 26th

For anyone within striking distance of Lincoln, Nebraska, next Friday evening there will be a talk on the Way of Beauty at the Newman Center in Nebraska at 7 pm. This is the opening event for a Diocesan Sacred Music Clinic, run by Adam Bartlett and Matthew Meloche, that will take place the next day.

The talk is by yours truly, and I plan to discuss how the past experiences of successfully establishing traditions in sacred art, such as the introduction of the iconographic style to medieval Russia, demonstrate principles that can be used to introduce high quality and beautiful sacred music to congregations that might otherwise be resistant.
