Music and the Sacred Heart

I have been meaning for some time to write about the music associated with the Sacred Heart, and recently Monsignor Philip Whitmore gave a interesting talk on Vatican Radio on the subject.  It is well-worth listening to. Go here.  It is a good starting point for thinking about the hymns associated with the Sacred Heart.  What a pity that one rarely gets an opportunity to sing them nowadays! Fr. Whitmore discusses a few of the most famous ones, but the hymns which focus on the Heart of Jesus and the spirituality of the heart are really quite extensive. Listening to the programme makes me think that I ought to post something on these songs of the heart.
