“One would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.”
— Ven. Pope Pius XII (20 November 1947)

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!
