Come and spend eight summer evenings and let chant
Unite you to 2,000 years of the Church’s eternal liturgical song.
Learn to sing a Chant that reflects 2,000 years of God’s eternal revelation, and takes us into the sacred mystery of Christ’s paschal redemption.
Take you from notes to the sung prayer of the liturgy.
Learn how the Scriptures and text of the Liturgy “inspires” chant in its expression in song. Our prayer of chant becomes a higher form of our expression together in liturgical prayer.

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Nothing touches the soul like music.” Experience how the psalms in the Liturgy and Hours open our souls to God who reveals Himself in His inspired songs.
Sing the new beautiful English chants and timeless Latin classics.
Discover how the “ever ancient” beauty and genius of Latin chant transforms our English into an “ever new” beautiful sung prayer of the Novus Ordo Mass.
