Vatican City, Nov 18, 2013 / 05:32 am
A well-known composer and professor in Rome has revealed his goal of depicting the Bible through musical composition, stressing that it is an important avenue of evangelization.
"My career," explained Msgr. Marco Frisina in a Nov. 11 interview with CNA, is to have "the Bible and the music" be "together like one embrace."
Msgr. Frisina graduated with a degree in composition from the Conservatory of Saint Cecilia in Rome, as well as a Licentiate from the Pontifical Biblical Institute in the city.
He is currently Chairman of the Diocesan Commission for Sacred Art and Cultural Heritage and a Consultant of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization, and since 1991 has been the Director of the Pontifical Musical Choir of the Lateran Basilica in Rome.
