MUSIC FROM THE TOWER: GUEST IS MICHAEL SILHAVY

Episode No. 45.  Saturday, September 8, 2018.    Michael Silhavy, Musician and Senior Editor at GIA Publications, does a Tribute show to the Cathedral Musician and Composer, Richard Thomas Proulx.

Richard Thomas Proulx was one of the most important composers of liturgical music in the twentieth century. Modern Liturgy Magazine called him the “most significant liturgical composer of the last twenty years.” Originally from Saint Paul, Proulx was born on April 3rd, 1937 to Raymond and Helen Proulx. He began piano studies at the age of six followed soon after by composition lessons in middle school. Both outside sources and Proulx himself recognized the benefits of the outstanding musical education offered at St. Patrick’s Parochial School located in St. Paul, MN. Proulx later studied at McPhail College in Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota receiving a degree in organ performance. Following graduate studies, he received honorary doctorates from the University of St. Thomas in 1989 and the General Theological Seminary in 1994.

Proulx began his professional career at Church of the Holy Childhood in Saint Paul, MN where he worked and directed for 15 years. Following his time in St. Paul, he directed and played for ten years at Saint Thomas Church in Seattle (1970-1980) before moving to the Cathedral of the Holy Name in Chicago where he played the organ and directed music for twenty years. Beyond his compositional pursuits, Proulx worked hard as an educator and clinician, teaching abroad in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, The Netherlands, Switzerland , and throughout the United States.

Proulx was prolific, writing more than 300 works in five plus decades as a professional musician and composer. His compositional abilities were broad, spanning the realms of instrumental, choral, and mixed ensemble works. He is well-known for many of his substantial works including his church opera, The Pilgrim, his Concerto for Organ and Strings, and The Child’s Book of Beasts. He also composed pieces and hymns familiar to many congregations, such as I Received the Living God (tune composed by the French Benedictine, Dom Clément Jacob (1906-1977), harmonization that appear in hymnals published by GIA Publications (Chicago) composed by Richard), and a Community Mass. Beyond his compositional endeavors, Proulx also consulted and contributed to Hymnal 1982 and The New Yale Hymnal among many others.

Proulx is also known for his founding of The Cathedral Singers in 1991. He directed the independent recording ensemble and spurred the release of more than twenty recordings of sacred music. The Cathedral singers have performed both in the US and abroad.

Proulx’s talents also reached into the secular world. He composed an orchestral score for documentary film The Golden Door, and his organ arrangement of Veni Creator was featured in the 1997 film The Devil’s Own. Work from The Cathedral Singers, made two television debuts on NBC’s hit show ER. Aside from appearances in television and film, Proulx put his composing talents to work in jingle writing and advertisement, composing the theme song for Union Pacific Railroad in 1971.

Proulx passed away on Thursday Feb 18th, 2010 in Chicago, but his spirit lives on in the works and music he left to the world. With the generosity of Richard and the Proulx family, St. John’s Alcuin Library is committed to the preservation of his work and legacy.

On this episode of MFTT, Michael Silhavy helps us remember the great life of this exceptional Church Musician and Composer.  Michael helps us explore Richard’s life in Minneapolis, Seattle, and of course in Chicago.  The amazing influence of this great musician, conductor, and educator is really beyond calculation.  Mr. Silhavy examines the life of Richard Proulx from the prospective of publisher, catholic musician, and personal friend.  Michael has just completed an exhaustive inventory of the works and life of Richard Proulx.  MFTT is grateful for helping us all remember this giant of sacred music.  All of the music is by Richard Proulx and is recorded by the Cathedral Singers, conducted by the composer.  It is available from GIA Publications.

CALL ME CATHOLIC: GUEST IS MIKE AQUILINA – “A HISTORY OF THE CHURCH IN 100 OBJECTS”

A big thank-you to today’s guest, Mike Aquilina! He shared some of the history behind the objects that he and his daughter Grace chose to catalogue in the compelling book, “A History of the Church in 100 Objects.” As it says in the introduction: “Catholicism is indeed the religion of ‘stuff’. Ours is the church of ashes and incense, icons and statues, bread and wine, water and oil, incorrupt bodies, and bones encased in glass.”

Mike helped to put these holy objects into perspective for all our Call Me Catholic listeners.
