Music

Qui enim cantat laudem, non solum laudat, sed etiam hilariter laudat; qui cantat laudem, non solum cantat, sed et amat eum quem cantat. In laude confitentis est praedicatio, in cantico amantis affectio.

For he who sings praise, does not only praise, but also praises joyfully; he who sings praise, not only sings, but also loves Him whom he is singing for. There is a praise-filled public proclamation in the praise of someone who is acknowledging God, in the song of the lover there is love.
Sanctus Augustinus, Enarratio in Psalmum 72, 1: CCL 39, 986 (PL 36, 914).

STATEMENT ON THE ROLE AND PLACE OF MUSIC IN OUR PARISH

We strive to keep alive and vibrant the tradition of sacred choral music and sung liturgy. We believe this tradition to have an important witness in our own day. We understand sacred music to mirror and join in with the heavenly choirs giving glory to God and showing forth the beauty of His creation. Of the many aims of our music program, we seek to elevate the cultural poverty that has arisen with the dispatching of music programs in public realms such as academia and the public square. We believe the language of heaven to be sung… in other words, we sing because God sings (Zep 3.17).
