ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dear Listener:
The founder of the Congregation of the Oratory, St. Philip Neri, often told his first disciples: Love to be
unknown! This was his invitation to live simply and humbly, doing good works without seeking what we
would now call "the spotlight."
Yet during his own lifetime, St. Philip's renown was great. His unadorned, joyous p ersonality influenced not
only the Catholic Church of his day but the whole city of Rome. Eventually his style of faith and community
spread to countries throughout Europe and the Americas.
One of his most important spiritua l practices was the use of music for inspiration, catechesis and delight.
Music and singing were central to his early prayer meetings and to his now legendary pilgrimages to the
seven great basilicas of the Eternal City.
As we commemorate the five hundredth anniversary year of his birth, this recording of the Brooklyn Oratoiy's
choir celebrates both the life of our "Saint of Joy" and the rich musical tradition which is his legacy to us.
Our previous recordings have chronicled our commitment to that inheritance. This recording confirms
again the exce llent quality and often soaring joy with which we are blessed by the Brooklyn Oratory's music
ministry week after week.
On behalf of Brother James Simon, Fathers Mark Lane, Joel Warden, Anthony Andreassi, Michael
Callaghan and myself: I invite you to enjoy again and again this Sweet, Sacred Feast.
In St. Philip's joy, I am,
The Very Reverend Dennis Corrado, c.o. Provost
