The Lyceum Around the Town

The other day I had the pleasure of driving down to Canton, Ohio at the invitation of the local radio station “Living Bread Radio.” My friend, colleague and director of the prestigious Lyceum Schola Cantorum , James Flood was there as well.

You may hear the interview here.

I always enjoy talking about The Lyceum and Catholic classical education so I simply could not turn down the opportunity to participate in the interview.

Incidentally, as far as I can tell, it really is true that one does not have to dress up for a radio interview. I was wearing a shirt and tie… but nobody else was. I have not done many radio interviews….but my guess is that wearing a tie does not make a difference except insofar as it might make one speak with more confidence.

So as you listen please do know that I am in fact wearing a tie.

The interview lasts about twenty minutes and it is mainly about The Lyceum, the mission of Catholic classical education, but with a particular focus on the choir.

In fact if you listen to the whole interview you will then hear the schola sing the Mozart Ave Verum Corpus…..Just beautiful!

    No doubt about it, the tie being worn basically penetrated the airwaves with a confidence that may have been deficient and diluted had the tie not been worn.

    The Lyceum Schola Cantorum punctuates the interview with an exclamation from the angelic choirs as they sing the Mozart Ave Verum Corpus…..Just beautiful, ahhhhhhh, Yes! Thanks for your sharing.

    Active participation by students in your classrooms? Not Actual? Hmmm…

      Right I know…but as Empedocles said (when he was explaining that death is nothing but a separation of undying parts and is therefore nothing really to get discouraged about…it is not “woeful death” as hoi polloi say!)… “I follow the custom and call it so myself.”
