“From six in the evening, his martyrdom had continued through the ghastly night until nine o'clock in the morning. After fifteen hours of torture rarely if ever surpassed in the bloody annals of the Iroquois, the soul of Gabriel Lalemant was freed from its charred and mutilated prison and summoned to join his comrade Jean de Brébeuf in the radiant splendor of God. March 17th, 1649, was the date; for Brébeuf it had been the sixteenth.”
— Fr. John A. O'Brien, speaking of St. Gabriel Lalemant

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!
