Schola cantorum

Picture4.png

Our Schola cantorum has a rich history of studying and promoting the highest level of sacred music. We meet weekly to study and learn choral literature that accompanies liturgical action.

While the Schola performs a wide variety of works from choral arts literature, we concentrate on polyphony of Byrd, Tallis, Luis de Victoria, DuFay, et al.

Another area of concentration is contemporary choral literature that strives to follow the style of Latin chant e.g. works by Durufle, Dupre, Latona, Locklair, Narzerud, and others.

Schola members attend weekly rehearsals in Rowland Education Building, second floor, choir room, Wednesday, 6-7:30 p.m. Child-care is provided. Schola members are expected to sing in 10:30 a.m. Sunday Holy Mass September through Corpus Christi Sunday which is in late spring or early summer. Additionally, the choir sings for Confirmation, Ordinations, All Souls, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week and Christmas Eve.
