“If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus, and the Agnus Dei…that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum Ergo, the Te Deum, and the Litanies sung by the people over any piece of polyphony.”
— Giuseppe Cardinal Sarto, Letter to Msgr. Callegari (1897)

HIS YEAR’S Sacred Music Symposium lived up to its reputation as the preëminent summer conference for musicians who take seriously their commitment to authentic Roman Catholic music. Over the next few months, numerous recordings will be released. Promotional materials were released in advance of this year’s conference.

Luc Poirier, FSSP), was recorded live:
