Dear Abbé

Professional musicologists offer answers and advice. Free.


What sort of seasonal music was on your mind there at the Monasterio?

                                                                ENQUIRING IN ENCINITAS

“Casta diva—you know, mistletoe and all that. My friend Pius took the title role. I found it all rather mind-bending.

After having given His Holiness a small proof of my skill on the armonium and on my work-a-day pianino, he addressed a few very significant words to me in the most gracious manner possible, admonishing me to strive after heavenly things in things earthly, and by means of my harmonies that reverberated and then passed away to prepare myself for those harmonies that would reverberate everlastingly.

Good advice. Meanwhile, see below for some film of how it was before I got religion. 

Kellemes karácsonyi ünnepeket / Fröhliche Weinachten / Buon Natal.
