Universa Laus 2013

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Universa Laus 2013

I have just returned from Universa Laus 2013 at Worth Abbey, an international meeting of RC liturgical musicians. UL was founded just after the Second Vatican Council by Gelineau, Huijbers and others to foster the study and implementation of the Council - which, in this the 50th anniversary year of Sacrosanctum Concilium (VII's decree on the liturgy) and with a new Pope who (unlike his two immediate predecessors) seems intent on furthering rather than closing down that implementation, is as relevant as ever. (That last sentence could have come from the new emasculated ICEL!)

Fr Michael Joncas has written four detailed reports of UL 2013 on the PrayTell blog:

UL 2014 will be held in Loreto, Italy. Details will appear on the UL website in due course:
