A message for old and new subscribers that everyone should read with an open heart…

Have a good day from Rome!
Let me introduce myself first. My name is Aurelio Porfiri, I am a composer, conductor, educator and writer from Rome, Italy. I worked and teached for 7 years in Macau (China) and in the past I was Substitute Organist for Vatican City Vicariate in Saint Peter’s Basilica (1993-2008), organist in charge for the wednesday’s Papal audience (1999-2008), Director of music of the Catholic american church in Rome (1999-2008).
I published more than 60 books in Italian, English, Chinese and French. On January 20 is coming the book I coauthored with Bishop Athanasius Schneider on the Catholic Mass.
If you are receiving this message is probably for two reasons:
  1. You are already a subscriber of Ritorno a Itaca newsletter;
  2. You were subscribed in one of my previous newsletters.
Now I run a You Tube channel, Ritorno a Itaca (Return to Ithaca) and I have there more than 3.000 subscribers. The channel is bilingual, with programs in Italian and English. Among my guests there were Cardinal Joseph Zen, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Father Joseph Fessio, Father Thomas Kocik, James Bogle, Joseph Shaw, Robert Moynihan, Vatican experts Aldo Maria Valli, Marco Tosatti, Riccardo Cascioli and many others.
Now this channel has this newsletter that will not only update you on the news from the channel itself but also will feature original content. 
You may decide to unsubscribe, I will respect that and I will ask only a prayer for me before you click the “fatal” button. But hope you will consider carefully before doing that.
If you decide to stay I will be happy and I hope you will enjoy our content, including the exclusive articles translated from my companion Italian newsletter, Traditio. There is also an English newsletter on Sacred Music in English (Cantus).
If you are willing for the present newsletter, there is a membership of $7 per month, that will help me to pay for translations and all the expenses related to such enterprise.
I hope you will be in the journey with me!
