“Father Daniel’s special work during his stay at Ihonatiria was with the children. Their parents had not trained or disciplined them, they were utterly lawless and bad-tempered, but with infinite forbearance and kindliness the missionary became a favorite with them… Having taught them to sing, he proceeded to train the children to chant the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Commandments, which he had rendered into Huron rhymes. Formed into a choir, they added beauty and solemnity to the chapel services and attracted great numbers of their elders to Mass.”
— From the Life of Saint Antoine Daniel (d. 1648)

ERONICA BRANDT holds a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Certificate IV in Breastfeeding Education. Her mother was a keen member of her local parish choir and singing was a part of everyday life. Her grandfather had a fondness for the Latin Mass, as well as a keen interest in apologetics. Somehow this mixed together to bring her to the periphery of the choir of the Maternal Heart of Mary Church, Lewisham. (maternalheart.org)

The Engineering degree introduced her to an arcane typesetting system called TeX, which turned out to be useful for typing up Gregorian chant. Soon Veronica ended up typing music for different groups and thereby learning much about Gregorian chant.

She lives in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia with her husband Peter and five children. More about her adventures in homeschooling, knitting and her husband’s drawings can be found at http://brandt.id.au.
