English Chant Mass in West Palm Beach

The Schola Cantorum of the Palm Beaches will be providing the musical leadership for the 4:00 anticipatory Mass (some call it the vigil Mass still) for the Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in West Palm Beach on May 31, 2008. The Mass will be completely chanted and completely in English. It is our hope that by chanting the propers, ordinary, and the readings of the novus ordo Mass in English that a wider audience may experience Pope Benedict XVI's vision for sacred music. It doesn't have to be in Latin. It just has to be sacred (defined as "set apart"). If you are interested in hearing what English chant can be like, we hope you will join us for this event.
