Sacred Music is a glorious and beautiful expression of prayer. In the Roman Catholic tradition, text and music corresponds to the mystery we celebrate, the structure of the rites, and the seasons of the liturgical year. In the course of the history of the Church, we have a rich heritage of musical styles including chant, polyphony, standard hymns, folk, and gospel, meditative contemporary tunes, simple melodies and rousing songs. Each style speaks to the heart of the faithful of various ages, cultural backgrounds and levels of faith. As we participate in the singing of texts of Sacred Scripture within the context of Sacred Mystery, it resonates within our hearts. Music sung together within the context of the sacred liturgy is a unifying force. Instrumental music inspires. Come and join us!
