"To the extent that the new sacred music is to serve the liturgical celebrations of the various churches, it can and must draw from earlier forms — especially from Gregorian chant — a higher inspiration, a uniquely sacred quality, a genuine sense of what is religious."
— Pope John Paul II (June 1980)

Brief Recording • Newest Choir In Los Angeles
published 11 March 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

175 Traditional Latin Mass IMAGE UR LORD AND SAVIOR, Jesus Christ, has been good to us here in Los Angeles. We have been able to establish a choir, even though our FSSP parish is still in its infancy.

Would you like to hear a short audio exerpt? Please tell your ears to be “merciful” because a cappella singing is extremely difficult—although it sounds easy!

    * *  PALESTRINA “Kyrie” (Chant & Polyphony)

We’ve been singing that polyphonic Kyrie Eleison for a few weeks.

If you know anyone in the Los Angeles area desirous of learning Gregorian chant & Renaissance polyphony, please have them contact me.  Thanks so much!
