They were not ashamed to lay their hands on Sedulius, on Prudentius, on St. Ambrose himself. Only in one or two cases does some sense of shame seem to have stopped their nefarious work. They left “Ave maris stella,” “Jam lucis orto sidere,” and St. Thomas Aquinas’s hymns alone (they would have made pretty work of “Sacris solemniis”). In 1629 their mangled remnants were published.

New CD: Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter
published 30 July 2012 by Guest Author

Dear Friends,

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) is happy to announce the release of a new audio CD, IN SÆCULA SÆCULORUM, which includes selections of Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony sung and recorded by the seminarians in their new chapel at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. This album provides the listener with a glimpse into the daily lives of the seminarians and serves as a melodic tour winding through the Liturgical Year of the Latin Rite. Each morning, the seminarians place themselves in the Presence of God, asking Him for assistance (Track 1, Deus in adiutórium). Each day ends with a hymn sung to Mary, the Mother of God, praising her and begging for her maternal protection (Track 22, Salve Regína). Throughout the day, the seminary community sings several times, using the ancient Latin chants for the Divine Office and for Holy Mass. Whether in the classroom or in the chapel, Gregorian chant plays an essential role in the traditional formation of future priests at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary.

All proceeds support Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary and the traditional formation of priests who will one day offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

More information about this CD can be found on the Seminary website. There are various ways to purchase.
