Porta Fidei - A Meditation on Faith in Words and Music

Cover of Porta Fidei CD
Jeremy de Satgé from Music Makers writes:
"Pope Benedict XVI has called for a “Year of Faith” to usher the whole Church into a time of particular reflection and rediscovery of the faith. The year starts on 11th October 2012, which is both the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Year of Faith will conclude on 24th November 2013, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King.

It has been a privilege and pleasure to produce a CD to help promote the Year of Faith generally and to produce a reflection on faith in words and music. The music selected for this CD is this recording includes both ancient and modern, Latin and English, with a particular emphasis on English music and featuring especially one of my favourite English composers, Orlando Gibbons.

Once again, I am indebted to Archbishop Bernard Longley, who has taken time from his busy schedule to narrate this CD."

The CD Porta Fidei is narrated by Archbishop Bernard Longley (Archbishop of Birmingham) and the music performed by Schola Cantamus directed by Jeremy de Satge

The CD costs £12.75 per copy and is available from St Pauls Bookshops, Catholic Truth Society, Redemptorist Publications, Pauline Books & Media and other retailers or by direct mail order from The Music Makers.
