OYH Selects: "Center of My Life"

Paul Inwood

This is a special re-release of our original episode from March, 2018. It has been expanded to include the OYH Playlist feature, and more!

Join us as OYH ventures "across the pond"! In this interview recorded in July 2017, Matt Reichert and Zack Stachowski spoke with composer Paul Inwood about one of his best-loved compositions and, in the process, learned a little bit about the trajectory of post-Vatican II music in the United Kingdom. In addition to earning extra frequent listener miles, this week's episode features another music theory lesson from Prof. Stachowski (and he busts out his guitar, back by popular demand). 

So, please open your hymnal to "Center of My Life."
