Musical Resources & John Scott RIP

Following Peter Kwasniewski’s recent post on Parish Musical Reform, we have received news that Paraclete Press are currently offering their highest bulk discounts on the Gregorian Missal and the CMAA’s Parish Book of Chant. If you are considering buying multiple copies of either of these titles, act now and call Jim Jordan at Paraclete Press (800-451-5006 ext 335). Their preferential rate is only available through August.

As readers of NLM may have heard, John Scott, the Organist and Choir Master of St Thomas’s Church on Fifth Avenue in New York City, died yesterday. He was a titan of the Church Music world, known for his spectacular technique as an organist, and for the high choral standards which he espoused. I have written a short tribute to him here. As well as prayers for his soul, please remember his wife Lily who is carrying their first child. May he rest in peace.
