Matthew Schellhorn signs International Declaration on Sacred Music

Matthew Schellhorn is one of the signatories to a high-profile declaration on the intrinsic value of Sacred Music.

This declaration, signed by over 200 musicians, pastors, and scholars from around the world and published in six languages (English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German), argues for the continued relevance and importance of traditional sacred music and critiques the numerous serious deviations from it that have plagued the Catholic Church for the past half-century.

Other signatories include Sir James MacMillan C.B.E. (composer and conductor), Peter Phillips (Founder and Director of the Tallis Scholars), Colin Mawby, K.S.G. (Liturgical Composer and Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral 1961–1977) and Dr. Joseph Shaw (Senior Research Fellow, St Benet’s Hall, Oxford University, and Chairman of the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales).
