Spotify Presents “Songs for the Conclave”


Spotify Presents “Songs for the Conclave”


Playlist Handpicked by Experts in Liturgy and Theology from
The University of Notre Dame

February 28, 2013: Very soon the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church from around the world will gather in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican to choose the next Pope and spiritual leader of over 1 billion Catholics.

Before the results are broadcast to the world via smoke signal, we wanted present a special conclave themed playlist to celebrate this rare, historic occasion. We’ve partnered with Tim O’Malley, Director, Notre Dame Center for Liturgy and Concurrent Professor, Department of Theology; and Carolyn Pirtle, Assistant Director, Notre Dame Center for Liturgy to create a playlist of hymns and choral music from the Spotify catalog.

Dr. O’Malley gave us his interpretation of the music selection:

“The playlist consists of motifs central to the Catholic imagination relative to the election of a Pope. It focuses upon certain themes, including the Church’s asking for guidance from the Holy Spirit during this time of transition; the Church’s crying out to God for mercy that we might be found worthy to receive a successor of Peter, who unites the Church in love; and praise for the God, who guides the Church through the twists and turns of history. The playlist is intended to give the listener a disposition of wonder, of contemplation, of prayer to the God who first loved us.”
