Continuity of old and new

The first round of Sacred Music archives is complete, though we are missing issues from the late 90s and early 2000s, for now.

Just to give you a sense of what is going on here, this publication is the oldest continuously published journal of its kind in the Western world. Alone among publications during the era of the great divide (V2), it survived, and kept coming out, even as the rest of the Catholic publishing world fell apart was reinvented. No one on the staff was paid a dime. It was published through member dues. (Some things haven't changed!)

So what we have here is something of a printed hermeneutic of continuity, a publication that stitches the new to the old in a marvelous way. It alone upheld the view of V2 that is increasingly becoming mainstream: it was a continuation of tradition, not a departure from it. For this reason, I'm very pleased, as are many people, that it is being made available for the world.
