Episode 21: Benedict Sheehan on the State of Music in American Orthodoxy

“Why Orthodox Can’t Sing . . . and How to Fix It” by Fr. Anthony Perkins
Good Guys Wear Black (AFR Podcast)

Benedict Sheehan is the Director of Music at St. Tikhon’s Seminary and the author of the Ancient Faith Radio blog, “The Music Stand“.  In this wide-ranging interview, we discuss the state of Orthodox music in America and some ways that it can be improved.  Benedict is a firm believer that supporting and developing musical vocations with the Church is critical to the health of our parishes.  He points out that this fact was generally accepted during the early years of Orthodoxy in America, but that we have been coasting for far too long.
