"There has been ... widespread misunderstanding of Ratzinger's liturgical and aesthetic theology. It is supposed that he only values what is old, and is opposed to creativity. The essays in this volume should correct this misapprehension...." Janet Rutherford, Ed.

This volume, which contains the proceedings of the Third Fota International Liturgy Conference, explores key themes in the Holy Fathers writings on liturgical music. The Fota International Liturgy Conferences are dedicated to the elucidation and promotion of Benedict XVIs vision of liturgical reform, emphasizing the importance of beauty in the celebration of the Churchs rites, and the necessity to go forward into the future as part of our inherited tradition. It also provides a forum for a younger generation of liturgists and musicians, drawn from various countries, who are presently engaged in the recovery and promotion of the Churchs musical heritage for liturgical use or in composing beautiful new and uplifting works of sacred music.
