Private Passions

You can still listen to this morning's Private Passions on the iPlayer - it will be there until next Sunday.  Today it featured David Bintley, Director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.  About three quarters of the way through he selects part of James MacMillan's Seven Last Words from the Cross and explains simply and lucidly how a Catholic responds to sacred music.

We (or at least I) complain often enough about the BBC.  Well, for once a Catholic was allowed to explain something Catholic to non-Catholics in a Catholic way.

It's a good start.
