Gregorian chant is forgotten, secular music is entering the liturgy. Tradition is despised, and unworthy musical pieces multiply faster than the Church can check them. Is this the 1970’s? Try the1470’s. Really? Join us for a discussion of the history of chant and its use in the liturgy. From birth, to loss to restoration.
This totally goes against the grain, but its interesting, I just don’t know what to think. It seems to me like any music in the middle ages was better than what it is in Churches today.
This was fantastic. This fellow really knows his stuff. I especially like that he chants the differences.
This completely changed my view of chant. More to help us realize that the crisis is not just what happened before Vatican II.
God grant you grace Mr. Jasper, to persevere in the monastic life you are beginning.
Will you be posting other interviews of Chris Jasper?
Alas, no, he is now in the monastery, so keep him in your prayers.
Can you tell me if this is the site where Christopher made other interviews, or singing, etc. He told me he had other interviews or singing, but I can’t remember who it was with, would you happen to know? Thank you.
No, this was the only one. I will attempt to locate that site and link it on this page.
Oh yes, but I thought he mentioned that he had other interviews (or singing) that were recorded. Maybe that was with someone else?
I came across his YouTube videos a few months ago.
They are just as good as this excellent interview, thanks for posting it. In these videos he discusses many different aspects of chant, unfortunately they do seem to stop rarther abruptly. I have wondered what happened to him. Glad to hear he is following his monastic vocation.
Thank you, I have seen his videos also. He had told me that someone had made some other recordings but had not posted them yet, but I couldn’t remember who. I will contact him. Thank you!
