    Beethoven and the Catholic Church MICHAEL DE SAPIO Ludwig van Beethoven, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart form the great trinity of Western classical composers. Of the three, it is Beethoven whose religious beliefs have proven the most elusive.  We know all about the devout Lutheranism of Bach, who wrote his music "for the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul"; and Mozart was a practicing Catholic, as his letters make clear.  Beethoven, by contrast, was reticent about expressing his religious convictions.  He is often portrayed as a child of the secular-humanist Enlightenment — a freethinking individualist...

    The Genius of Sacred Music as Heard in Seven Musical “Onomatopoeias” Msgr. Charles Pope • September 11, 2016 • Do you remember the meaning of the literary term onomatopoeia? In case you’ve forgotten, it’s a word that sounds like the object it describes. Words like oink, meow, wham, sizzle, and my personal favorite: yackety-yak are examples of onomatopoeia.There are times when music, including sacred music, has an onomatopoetic quality; they sound like what their words are describing. For example, there are songs that describe the crucifixion featuring hammer blows in the background, and songs about the resurrection and ascension...

    When music class begins this week at Toronto’s Donwood Park elementary school, Mohammad Nouman Dasu will send a family member to collect his three young children. They will go home for an hour rather than sing and play instruments – a mandatory part of the Ontario curriculum he believes violates his Muslim faith. The Scarborough school and the Toronto District School Board originally had offered an accommodation – suggesting students could just clap their hands in place of playing instruments or listen to acapella versions of O Canada – but not a full exemption from the class.

It's in the main Asteroid Belt, out between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, and is about 3 and a half km across," May continued. "It's like a cinder in space as many of these asteroids are," said May. "You need a pretty decent telescope to see it. It’s just a dot of light but it’s a very special dot of light and maybe...

The song, featured on the Atlanta-based artist’s new Us or Else EP, features the refrain of “Hands Up, Cant’ Breathe,” a reference to the Black Lives Matter protest chants made popular following the police-involved killing of New York City resident Eric Garner. “War Zone” references other high-profile shootings of black men, including that of Philando Castile, who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer in an incident that was live-streamed in a widely shared Facebook video, and of...

Prior to her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, the former Destiny’s Child member appeared alongside the mothers of several blacks killed by police officers. Their deaths have helped spark the Black Lives Matter movement.

    On April 8, 1994, Kurt Cobain, the revered frontman of grunge rock band Nirvana, was found dead at his home in Seattle, Washington. His death was almost immediately ruled to be and was unanimously reported as a suicide, a self-inflicted gunshot with a 12-gauge shotgun. Also almost immediately, the stories of mysterious circumstances and cover-ups began to circulate. Other than in small but persistent conspiracy theory circles, these stories were largely overshadowed by the official police and world media storylines, and they may never have had their day in the sun were it not for the 2015 release of Benjamin...

The audience ranged in age from fired-up retirees to one particularly enthusiastic preschooler in hot-pink ear protection.

    Here's something I find remarkable: There are only three professionally made recordings of The Beatles playing live in concert. Sure, there are bootleg recordings that don't sound very good. And there's a single-microphone recording from the band's days performing in Hamburg in the early '60s, but that's it. All three professional recordings were done at The Hollywood Bowl. One is a performance from August 1964 and the other two from August of '65. And "professional" in the mid-'60s means they were recorded on three-track analog tape. That's the best they could do. Even the label, Capitol Records, concluded the recordings...

    Bobby Hutcherson, one of the most admired and accomplished vibraphonists in jazz, died on Monday at his home in Montara, Calif. He was 75. Marshall Lamm, a spokesman for Mr. Hutcherson’s family, confirmed the death, saying Mr. Hutcherson had long been treated for emphysema. Mr. Hutcherson’s career took flight in the early 1960s, as jazz was slipping free of the complex harmonic and rhythmic designs of bebop. He was fluent in that language, but he was also one of the first to adapt his instrument to a freer postbop language, often playing chords with a pair of mallets in each...

It is spring 1966, and the Beatles are ensconced in London’s EMI Studios, where they have embarked upon their latest manipulation of time. The Christmas season just passed had seen the release of the band’s sixth album, Rubber Soul, a game-changer of a disc that wedded American rhythm and blues to English folk music, as if the two genres were meant to go together all along.
