The Decline and Fall of Classical Music

Olicer Rudland says it went hand in hand with the loss of the "deeper set of convictions which the classical composers held in common, and upon which the nation states of Europe themselves were predicated" — The Loss Of Faith Made Music Mute.

"With the many subversive and insidious forces of globalisation beginning seriously to undermine the legitimacy of the nation state, and with Christianity under attack from a new liberal bigotry which has made expressing Christian sentiments all but taboo in much public life, what we need now are forms of culture that will help us to shore up these foundations."
