“Re-launched?,” some readers may ask. When was it launched the first time?
Dear reader, I blush to think how very few people must know or care that ChanttheRosary was launched before, not once, but twice.
This tutorial first appeared as a lengthy post on my Poe.com blog, published July 7, 2007 — that’s right, 7/7/7, the same day that Pope Benedict XVI issued his Motu Proprio on restoring the Latin Mass.
Subsequently, on August 28, 2007, I re-launched the tutorial on its own Web site, ChanttheRosary.com. The site unfortunately developed more problems than I had time to address, so I was forced to abandon it for many months, casting it adrift like a derelict ship.
I hope my readers will agree that the present site marks a great improvement over the old one.
The launch date could hardly be more auspicious. Today is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, in the Year of our Lord 2008. Legend holds that Our Lady appeared to St. Dominic in the church of Notre Dame de Prouille 800 years ago, in A.D. 1208. There, it is said, the Blessed Mother imparted to St. Dominic the secrets of the Holy Rosary.
Here at ChanttheRosary.com, we don’t have many secrets to impart, but we do offer a wealth of information concerning a long-neglected subject — how to sing the Rosary in Latin, in the authentic melodies of Gregorian chant.
Welcome, dear readers, to the new, improved ChanttheRosary.com. I hope you find it useful.22:43:19 UTC | Uncategorized | Blogroll |
