The phrase Celtic Rite must not be taken to imply any necessary homogeneity, notes the Catholic Encyclopedia. For the evidence such as it is, is in favor of considerable diversity. Far from an insular religion, Irish Catholicism spread to France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Northern Spain through the missions of St. Columbanus and others, and both influenced and absorbed the Continent's practices throughout the medieval period.

Historians have recently set out to restore [the Irish Church] to its rightful place on the European historical map, writes Trinity College Dublin's Ann Buckley in her introduction to a book of scholarly essays called Music, Liturgy, and the Veneration of Saints of the Medieval Irish Church in a European Context.

To varying degrees, all of the scholars represented in this collection write to counter the essentializing quest for what might be unique or other about Ireland and Irish culture" among all other European national and religious histories.

Buckley's writing on the veneration of Irish saints has made a significant contribution to this effort, and her decade and a half of archival work has helped create the Amra project, which aims to digitize and make freely available online over 300 manuscripts containing liturgical material associated with some 40 Irish saints which are located in research libraries across Europe.

The Other "Purple Haze" Chord

Ask most guitarists how to play the chord made famous by "Purple Haze," and they'll likely strum the E7#9 known informally the world over as "the Hendrix chord. However, other players who saw Jimi Hendrix perform four times in 1968 - can attest that in later performances of the song, Hendrix sometimes used an open-position Em7 instead.

In 1964, a 17-year-old guitarist named Steve Howe walked into the Selmer music store in London and special-ordered this Gibson ES-175. A hollowbody electric was an unusual choice for a future rock star, but one of Howe's strongest influences was jazz player Barney Kessel, who played a Gibson Super 400CES hollowbody. https://stevehowe.com
