Musical Treasures of the Mozarabic (Hispanic) Rite - New Episode with Jim Monti

Readers of Magnificat or The Wanderer, or those interested in St Thomas More or Eucharistic adoration, may already know the name of James Monti, a scholar who has contributed much to the recent Catholic awareness of medieval liturgical rites, especially those of Spain. Jim is a man who not only spends countless hours poring over manuscripts, but who is a nearly continuous presence near Our Lord in the tabernacles in chapels of Westchester county in New York.

In this episode of Square Notes: The Sacred Music Podcast, Jim takes listeners through a tour of the Spanish ceremonies and devotional practices of Holy Week, and the hosts offer musical renderings of some of the chants of the rites. Tune in for an inspiring overview of these dramatic rites, and learn more in Jim’s book, A Sense of the Sacred: Roman Catholic Worship in the Middle Ages from Ignatius Press.
