A letter to the editor of The Remnant: "I am a composer of traditional sacred choral music based in England and was wondering if you might publicise my Latin sacred choral music in “The Remnant.” On my web site there is an attractive video presentation which might be of interest to your readership. The music, performances and recording are of a fine quality – not just in my opinion.

"Sir James Galway wrote to me and said 'This is one of my favourite CDs; masterfully written, beautifully sung. It brings me nearer to God. I have given it as a gift to many of my friends.'

"Please put up the video on “The Remnant” web site for your readers to enjoy if you’d like to support me in my sacred choral music.

"It is difficult for me to sell my music so I would be grateful to you for some publicity. I can provide high quality scores for all my sacred pieces and give bulk discounts. As it is, the music is not expensive. My music is designed to be sung by a Catholic SATB choir of average ability.

"Sacred choral music is an important part of the fight in which we are all engaged but the difficulty is that Catholics are slow to support new endeavour. Any help you might give me would be much appreciated.

Your sincerely,
Nicholas Wilton"

REMNANT COMMENT: Happy to help, Mr. Wilton. It is all just so beautiful, but your Panis Angelicus  brought tears to my eyes. May God bless your efforts to glorify Him with your music. The Remnant endorses this noble effort, of course.
