“I felt that I was leaving part of myself behind, and that wherever I went afterwards I should feel the lack of it, and search for it hopelessly, as ghosts are said to do, frequenting the spots where they buried material treasures without which they cannot pay their way to the nether world.”
― Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

I am graduate student in music composition and director of music at a small suburban parish. Though writing music is my formal course of study, approaching it from the disciplinary standpoint of a philosophy of human nature and aesthetics is also very important to me. My hope is that, in putting my ideas out for public review and critique, I will continually grow in understanding of the art to which I’ve dedicated my life. Thanks for reading!

    I think I followed a link from NewAdvent over here. Just want to say Godspeed in your various pursuits and in this one. May the spirits of Belloc and Senior infuse your cultural undertakings with a manful zeal and, if God permits it, may they intercede for you.

    Pray every day.
