Father T. Frank Kennedy is a Jesuit musician and scholar who has found actual scores of music composed for Jesuit schools in the 17th and 18th centuries, and then produced some of these very early examples of Baroque music. Composers who worked for the Jesuits include Palestrina, Charpantier and William Byrd. Kennedy teaches at Boston College which has also begun a new Monumenta Musicae Societatis Iesu to make this recovered music more accessible.
