Claudio Monteverdi's Domine ad Adiuvandum Me Festina from His "Vespers of 1610" Performed by Cantar Lontano, Directed by Marco Mencoboni

Above, the opening to what this blogger beleives to be the greatest work of music in human history, Claudio Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610, in honor of some Church events that took place in the same year:

  • Tea at Trainon reminds us of an important event for English-speaking Catholics — Douay-Rheims, 400th anniversary. Note that the Catholic translation was published a year before the Authorized King James Version.

  • On the missionary fronts, the year also saw the passing of the missionary to China — The CDth Anniversary of This Blog's Namesake's Death — and also important events in the New World — Canada: 400th anniversary celebrations of first aboriginal baptism.
