Season 5 of Square Notes is Live

Just in time to provide some listening for the relaxation of the Christmas holiday, Square Notes: The Sacred Music Podcast is back with season 5.
Our season kicks off with an inspiring discussion with Fr. Christopher Smith about his work with his parish school, their excellent liturgies, strong Catholic identity, and welcoming spirit. A wonderfully engaging interview with Dr. Thomas Forrest Kelly (Harvard) covers some of the topics from his excellent book, Capturing Music: The Story of Notation. The hot topic of church musician burnout (and the related clergy burnout) is covered in the third episode. Episode four is a very special interview with one of the foremost improvisers and composers in the French tradition, Naji Hakim.
Access the episodes on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Audible, Spotify, iHeart Radio, YouTube, Stitcher, or most any podcast app.
