“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Gregorio Allegri
I came across a BBC program on the story of Gregorio Allegri's iconic masterpiece Miserere. As usual the BBC made a visually elegant production with vaguely anti-Catholic undertones -- but it's still worth watching. The program is 30 minutes long and traces the Miserere we know today back to its more simple beginning.
