At the annual meeting of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians a couple of weeks ago, the liturgical blog Pray Tell offered live webcasts of some of the most significant proceedings of the week and also some interesting panel discussions. (All of these are now archived here).
For a little additional flavor, Rita Ferrone, one of the webcast moderators, did some brief “person on the street” interviews on the exhibition floor of the convention. She ended up with interesting exchanges about, for example, how paschal candles are made and how one composer creates liturgical music.
Among these conversations, Rita graciously asked if I might talk about one of my favorite books from among those Liturgical Press offered at our booth there. While almost everything else among the many Pray Tell Live webcasts and recordings that week was probably a lot more interesting, I’m always up for talking about books. My comments to Rita are now posted here at Pray Tell.
