The Parish Choir sings the Solemn Mass at 11 o’clock, each Sunday, September through the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), in late May or June, as well as for all feasts and solemnities. Their repertoire encompasses nearly eleven centuries of music, from medieval chant to renaissance polyphony, to new choral compositions that are consonant with the American Cathedral tradition. A Cantor from the choir leads the congregation in the Hymns, Acclamations, and Mass Ordinary (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Mystery of Faith, Amen, and Agnus Dei) at the other weekend Masses.
The Parish Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings, at 7 o’clock, in the Don Bosco Center. New members are always warmly welcomed. The ability to read music is not necessary. Only a commitment to regularly attend rehearsals and Sunday Mass is required. Prospective choir members are encouraged to contact the Organist and Director of Sacred Music <firstname.lastname@example.org>, speak to him after any weekend Mass, or simply call the church office at 504 340 0444.
