Why Organ and Not Piano? New Episode of Square Notes

The latest episode of Square Notes: The Sacred Music Podcast examines the origins of the organ in the Roman rite, and the theological basis for its acceptance into a religion that considers the human voice as its primary instrument. If you’ve been looking for a primer in the Church’s understanding of the pipe organ, or for a way to explain the mens Ecclesiæ to people in your parish, give this episode a listen. Our guest is Dr. Nathan Knutson, Director of Sacred Music at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia.
