Fr Briggs in town (or toon)

Fr Briggs of Chislehurst, Kent, came to visit this week. For those who may not remember, from the references on the Hermeneutic of Continuity where he has a cameo role, Fr Briggs is a devoted fan of the Blessed Pius IX. While playing around with YouTube we found this musical tribute to Pio Nono. Not only this but a whole cantata with music by Rossini in honour of this extraordinary Pope. Can we look forward to a cantata by James MacMillan in honour of Benedict XVI?

Here`s an extract from the Rossini cantata coupled with a homage.
