Episode 38 - Paul Jernberg, #5: On the Need for Humble Artistry in Sacred Music

Drawing on the words of Pope St. Pius X, Paul Jernberg tells us how the performance of sacred music must point away from the performer and in such a way that it is accessible to all who hear. This not just about the composition of the music itself, it is about how it’s performed. No rock histrionics, or operatic verve please!
