Vatican Art Patrons Online

For those of you that are interested in supporting the arts, let's not forget the Catholic Popes. There is a vast amount of artwork, some from controversial sources, but in general an example of a faith community seeking a method to arouse concentration & meditation towards their God.

New book out "Meditations On Vatican Art" was reviewed on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) their radio division, with news about new authorities that oversee the patronage of the art work currently held within the museums.

Donation opportunities include: Raphael's Final Masterpiece: The Room of Constantine, Tribute to John Paul II, Zakopane, 12-Month Internship, Vatican Coffin Research, & Renovation of Rooms I & II in the Egyptian Museum. Many more groupings of projects & wishlists remain.

The link is, with chapters in California for those of you who may want a local touch.

COPYRIGHT of original music discussed

I asked the Executive Producer of Hilltop Records what their policy is regarding the use of music they produce. Hilltop Records produces music for many beginning their careers, and are seeking publicity. They operate out of Los Angeles.

He explained that clients of his who have their original music produced by Hilltop Records, retain their copyrights. If that same composer chooses to sell the material to another company, as long as it is not Hilltop's production, all is well. The problem is when an artist uses the Hilltop production as their own. This clears this up for me because I have paid Hilltop to produce material of mine, but I intend to use it in a musical production of new arrangements in my play "Miss-Placed: The New York Years".
