Thank you for visiting our music website!

Music is an important ministry and  has its own place amongst others.

Oratio Griffi summed up the power of  music in the Roman Oratory, In his preface to Anerio's 'Teatro Armonico Spirituale' (1619) as  'drawing 

with a sweet deception the sinners to the holy that people, being allured by song and tender words, would be more disposed to spiritual profit; nor was your idea in vain, since some, coming...only to hear the music, and then remaining, moved and captivated by the sermons and the other holy exercises...., have become servants of God'.
