Robert Cundick: A Sacred Service of Music

The Interpreter Foundation’s first filmmaking venture, Robert Cundick: A Sacred Service of Music, is now available for viewing online. See below.

It’s the initial installment in what we hope will be a series of such films, titled “Foundation Stones: Exemplary Individuals,” that will look at faithful scholars, writers, composers, and visual artists who have substantially devoted their lives to serious reflection on the scriptures and the Gospel and to expressing in their respective media what they’ve found.

Other film projects are also underway and will be announced in the near future.  We are seeking financial support for these efforts.
