A live recording of beautiful choral music by Chicago composer, Kevin Allen and performed by the Lincoln Chamber Chorale. The pervasive influence of our secular culture is destroying our ability to discern fundamental truths. This numbing of our senses has negatively affected our family and community life, our schools and political structures and even the Church. After reading the 'Moto Proprio, Tra le Sollecitudini,' of Pope Pius X, I was faced with a challenge that has been my endeavor from that day until now: 'to increase the beauty and splendor of the ceremonies of the Church.' The music that I have composed for the Liturgy is my offering to the Church, to beauty, purity and truth, the formidable weapons in the battle for our minds, hearts and souls. - Kevin Allen
