Matthew Arthur, my friend from down under, joins the show to discuss music and it’s fall from being once written directly for God to now being written directly against Him. In this Part 2 of a 3 part series, we sample pieces from the classical, romantic and modernist eras and discuss in depth the downward progress from godliness towards worldliness.

If you have any questions about this show, Matthew would be happy to answer your questions (or hate mail) and you can reach him at: matt.roch.arthur(at)
