Music and religion have been intertwined for as long as humanity has been singing. Music is often a vehicle for our religious experiences, to be performed both in secular and sacred environments. "The Composer as Contemplative" Podcast exists at this point of intersection, meditating both on the role of music in the spiritual and liturgical life, and about the role of faith in the musical life. From discussions of contemporary music to musings on the interior life, and everything in between, ...

We looked at a new work that I’d written in Ep…
 
Our five-part series on the Ordinary of the Mass concludes with an in-depth look at the "Agnus Dei," or the "Lamb of God." The text both draws upon the other texts of the Ordinary and on the Scriptural image of Christ as Lamb, most prolifically placed throughout the Book of Revelation. Believe it or not, this liturgical year is drawing to a close, …
 
The "Sanctus," with a text joining the Old and New Testaments (Isaiah 6:3 and John 12:13), is a beautiful and jubilant reminder of the heavenly presence of our liturgical celebrations. This week we continue our series on the "Ordinary of the Mass" by diving into the spiritual ramifications of the "Sanctus" text, as well as by looking at two musical…

"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men'" (Luke 2:13-14). Those words are transposed into the mouth of the people in the Mass, a jubilant reminder of the wonder of the Incarnation and the beauty of the Trinity. Part 2 of …
 
The Mass is a miracle every time it happens. Whether we like the priest, the homily, the music, the church or not. Christ truly becomes present in his Word and in his Body and Blood. What is the "Ordinary" of the Mass, then? Is anything about the Mass "ordinary?" Find out on this week's episode! Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/connermccai…
 
Why does the organ have pride of place, at least among instruments, in the Latin Church? This week's episode leads a tour of Church history, followed by a meditation on Tradition and the ability of musical improvisation, such as Maurice Duruflé's (1902-1986) Choral Variation on the Veni Creator Spiritus, to mirror the living out of the Gospel in th…
 
The four-part series on Olivier Messiaen concludes with a reflection on the vocation of the artist. By linking his love of nature to his faith, Messiaen, in Des Canyons aux étoiles..., presents the world as the theatre of God's creativity, and the workshop of man's sanctification. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/connermccain)…
 
This week, we look at Olivier Messiaen's other great musical inspiration: nature, and specifically birdsong. Though distinct from his faith, his liturgical and religious spirit runs clearly through even the most "secular" of works, including his work for the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence, Des Canyons aux étoiles... Inspired by the…
 
We continue our deep dive into the creative life of Olivier Messiaen with his Trois petites liturgies de la présence divine (1945) for female choir, strings, and percussion. This work is emblematic of his entire output, fusing orthodox theology and surrealist poetry with his frenzied and colorful music. A sonic cathedral, Trois petites liturgies is…
 
Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was one of the most influential and highly-revered composers of the 20th century, seemingly despite the fact that he was overtly Roman Catholic and his work was very often based on Scripture. This first entry gives an overall introduction to his life, and sets the groundwork for my argument in the next episode that his …

Taylor Swift's music is so popular because it is emotionally resonant, and her new album, folklore, is no different. We hear her stories and they make sense in our lives.

The second episode in a three-part series on the Second Vatican Council focuses on participation. In Luke 10, Christ himself says that Mary, who sits at his feet rather than help her sister, Martha, "chose the better part." Is she doing nothing? Or is she participating in Christ's mission in some way? At concerts and plays, we sit quietly, taking i…
 
Why does a council of bishops from almost sixty years ago matter to us today? In what ways did it change the Church?

The people who lived through the aftermath…

Today I speak with Ronna Russell, author of "The Uncomfortable Confessions of a Preacher's Kid".
