We’ve Got The Beat
Show Notes: Hosts:  Peter Holmes & Rian Galliott Guest:  Tara Veness Links & References: Regarding Vatican II and music, Tara was correct (and Peter wrong). The Second Vatican Council does indeed address music in the mass. The document Sacrosanctum Concilium, (112-121) addresses music in public worship.  http://www.vatican.va/archive/hist_councils/ii_vatican_council/documents/vat-ii_const_19631204_sacrosanctum-concilium_en.html It also refers to the document Musicam Sacram. http://www.vatican.va/archive/hist_councils/ii_vatican_council/documents/vat-ii_instr_19670305_musicam-sacram_en.html The “millennial whoop” is a commonly used trill that sticks in our minds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennial_whoop Peter Mentioned the song Lethean by Katatonia can be found here: https://open.spotify.com/track/098dnLhXP42g8B6JL4AM9Q?si=Kxhg_qltQgKMW_JbJGZwfQ Peter also referred to The Grand Conjuration by Opeth (which he incorrectly named “the Conjuring”). Tara mentioned Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich.
