In this significant  new book, Fr Guy Nicholls, a member of the Oratory of St Philip Neri in Birmingham that Newman himself founded, examines for the first time in the aesthetic that inspired Newman. looks at Newman’s own musical compositions and the music of great composers that influenced him; at the churches that Newman built, at their furnishing and decoration, and the European and British buildings which he used as points of reference; at painting and landscape that was important to his development.
