CAPPELLA FEDE: Lost Catholic music to be premiered

Several recently discovered pieces of eighteenth century music are to be given their first modern airings during a concert at Ushaw’s historic St Cuthbert’s chapel.

The concert will showcase Catholic music from the break with Rome in the sixteenth century to the eve of nineteenth century Catholic emancipations, exploring the ways in which the music developed to fit the frequently clandestine environments in which it had to be performed.

Canon Reginald Fuller (1908-2011) - A Reminiscence E-mail
Written by Henry Wansbrough OSB   
Wednesday, 18 May 2011 18:04

Fr Reggie Fuller was a distinguished Scripture scholar and founding member of the Catholic Biblical Association of Great Britain. To mark his death, we offer the following reminiscence by Fr Henry Wansbrough OSB

I last visited Reggie some five years ago, in 2007, seeking information for an obituary-article on his school-friend and long-term colleague Dom Bernard Orchard. At the age of 99 he was still bright, lively and humorous. We spent a couple of hours together while he poured out his memories of their long association, jumping sparrow-like from one project to another. They had become colleagues as pupils at Ealing Priory School, and, though Reggie later moved to Ampleforth, continued their association for three-quarters of a century. This long-playing duet was of major significance for English Catholic biblical studies, and particularly for ecumenism. Always self-effacing, Reggie allowed himself to remain largely in the shadow of Bernard’s expansive, dominating character. Among their joint projects were two important publications, A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture (of which Bernard was editor for the first edition in 1953 and Reggie for the second in 1969) and the Revised Standard Version of the Bible – Catholic Edition (1966). Reggie was, however, perfectly capable of initiatives of his own, being a founder member and Secretary of the Catholic Biblical Association of Great Britain and founder of the periodical Scripture.
