Being a Catholic with traditionalist leanings, I have not been much of a fan of what today is called worship music. Give me some “Salve Regina” any day. Nevertheless, there are always exceptions. A couple of years ago on Easter weekend, one of my favorite podcasters and pundits – John Derbyshire – ended his weekly podcast with the song below, titled “How Long, O Lord?” by Sovereign Grace Music:
I was, to say the very least, moved and impressed. Even more so considering that Derbyshire is a self-admitted atheist (albeit of a very squishy variety, being that he is also a parishioner at his local Episcopal church in suburban Long Island). It is a wonderful, deeply emotional and spiritual song. I hope you all enjoy it. And a Happy Easter to all.
