In this weekend`s Catholic Herald, there is an inspiring article about the development of liturgical music at the parish of St Wulstan’s in Wolstanton, Staffordshire under the direction of the husband-and-wife musical team, David and April West. They now have children singing Gregorian chant and polyphony. It shows what can be done with enthusiasm and knowledge. The parish priest is Fr Anthony Dykes, to whom I once spoke on the phone as we were both working on Phd`s on Prudentius at the same time. I`ll be going into our primary schools after half-term armed with the music of Mass XVIII!
