“In spite of what it is currently called, the music of these songs is not modern: this musical style is not new, but has been played in the most profane places and surroundings (cabarets, music halls, often for more or less lascivious dances with foreign names). The people are led on to rock or swing. They all feel an urge to dance about. That sort of “body language” is certainly alien to our Western culture, unfavorable to contemplation and its origins are rather suspect. Most of the time our congregations, which already find it hard not to confuse the crochets and the quavers in a 6/8 bar, do not respect the rhythm; then one no longer feels like dancing, but with the rhythm gone to pieces, the habitual poorness of the melodic line becomes all the more noticeable.”
— Unnamed choirmaster (Northern France) circa 1986

84277 ver0 ERONICA MORENO was born and raised in southern California to parents of Mexican heritage who raised her and her siblings with a pious faith. Having spent every other summer in central Mexico visiting her grandparents, her earliest musical influences included traditional mariachi music.

After parochial school, she attended UCLA and earned an undergraduate degree in Ethnomusicology. During this time she began working with newborns and infants who had severe special needs. This inspired her to study special education at Cal State LA, earning her graduate degree and credential. She taught pre-school students with autism before deciding to become a homeschooling mom.

Veronica is a long-time cantor at her local parish. As a young adult, she was introduced to the rich musical traditions of the Catholic Church, and now strives to bring that ethos into her service to the Church.

Veronica is married to a high school teacher and homeschools her five young children. She is proud of her vocation as a mother and teacher, and works tirelessly to create a learning atmosphere at home. She enjoys reading Jane Austen novels, watching period dramas, and drinking iced coffee.
