I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. -Psalm 103
This site, currently (February 2018) in a bit of renovation, will be a resource for sacred music, with a bit of a lean towards medieval music. It is intended to share my love of singing and also has the utility of organizing stuff I like and use. It is intended for an amateur audience and I hope it may inspire people to sing and play, too, especially as music is such a beautiful form of prayer. The world needs much more prayer and much more beautiful music.
I’m currently renovating a few other sites of mine, also, including Fun with Saints (featuring stories about favorite saints, but not updated very often) and Thirsty Hart, which has already suffered numerous razings and rebuildings and now will become more focused on art, especially medieval art and my own doodles. God willing.
The name of this site was inspired by Saint Montfort:
It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world.
Mary is… the magnificence of the Almighty where he hid his only Son, as in his own bosom, and with him everything that is most excellent and precious. What great and hidden things the all-powerful God has done for this wonderful creature, as she herself had to confess in spite of her great humility, “The Almighty has done great things for me.”
The whole world is filled with her glory….And yet in truth we must still say with the saints: De Maria numquam satis: We have still not praised, exalted, honoured, loved and served Mary adequately.
