St. Ambrose

I have been meaning to post, but things have been very busy.  Today is the commemoration of St. Ambrose, who is important for many reasons, but one of the big reasons is because he was St. Augustine’s pastor.  Wikipedia has a decent write up of his life, so I’ll point you there via the link above.  As this is a quick post, I’ll leave you with Ambrosian chant which is distinct in its East-meets-West musical origins.  It is among the most difficult chants to sing (especially for a Westerner such as me who is not used to 1/4 tones).
