A mystery to me at the Papal Audience on Wednesday, 18 October was the identity of the English monsignor who read out the names of the English-speaking groups of pilgrims present at the audience. His accent was very obviously not American, nor Irish, nor Scottish, nor even Australian. Father Michael Brown, at Forest Murmurs, was there too and recognised the voice of Monsignor Philip Whitmore of the Secretariat of State, who is also the Director of the Schola of the Venerable English College. During October, Monsignor Whitmore, a music historian, has been speaking on Vatican Radio on Music and the Mysteries of the Rosary; you can hear his programme on the Visitation by clicking here. Here he is, photographed by our Laus Crucis paparazzo at the Audience on 18 October.
