Fall Pilgrimage to the National Shrine

...where I was over the weekend. Glorious to spend a couple of days with people who love chant.

Visit The Recovering Choir Director to listen to sound clips from Missa Solemnis last night and hear the participants chant the Ordinary. The schola chanted the Propers and the Shrine schola sang the utterly beautiful polyphonic motets. The Ordinary was Mass IX, Cum Jubilo, except for the Gloria taken from Mass XV.

It was a much-needed break from parish responsibilities.
