Sacred Music at St. Mary’s

Easter 2014 - chantingAt St. Mary's, we are dedicated to cultivating the study and practice of the sung prayer of the Catholic Church. Sacred music is not a mere ornament, but a “necessary and integral part of the sacred liturgy” that “adds delight to prayer, fosters unity of minds, [and] confers greater solemnity upon the sacred rites” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 112).  Music is therefore an area of our liturgical life upon which we place tremendous emphasis.

All sung Masses at St. Mary's feature the full Gregorian chant Propers, as well as the Ordinary of the Mass sung in Latin to plainchant or polyphony.
