This episode was recorded in May while we were in Lourdes leading the music for the Archdiocese of Birmingham’s annual pilgrimage. Dan’s been part of the core music team for our diocesan pilgrimage for the past few years, alongside Jo Boyce and pianist Andy Ross. His music is fast becoming part of the much-loved repertoire of our regular pilgrims.
In this episode Jo Boyce and Dan Callow talk about music in Lourdes on the Diocesan Pilgrimage.
- Jo answers this week’s Liturgy Question from Paula to suggest settings of the ‘Our Father’ that meet the new expectations of the revised translation of the Mass and will appeal to both young and old?
- Dan talks about the joy of sharing new music while in Lourdes on the Diocesan Pilgrimage…
- How singing live in the context of the liturgy always beats singing in a recording studio
- The creative experience of working with Craig McLeish as producer/arranger for the first time
