“To treat harmony and rhythm in this matter was a difficult matter. Facing numerous problems both large and small—that arose constantly—we understood that a flawless harmonization of Gregorian chant cannot be created by improvisation, no matter the competence and ability of the organist or harmonist.”
— Mons. Jules Van Nuffel, NOH Preface

CLOTHING

Please wear your best clothing—this is a special offering to God, and shows our guests that we take seriously the most Sacred Liturgy.


WORKING YOU HARD

I am going to work you very hard on Sunday, starting at 5:00pm.

So please be prepared to work hard on this choral music. Consider bringing water.

Here’s the MUSICAL PROGRAM for Sunday—please make sure you know your music very well, although ladies don’t have to learn the Communion this week.


AFTERWARDS

We will be taking some choir breaks after 14 May. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please begin learning #5612, because after two years I think we are ready to sing the full Gloria!

Also, please begin learning #5984, a new setting of the CREDO.
