Ten Years of Chant

Ten years ago, the Guild sang at Mass for the first time on this, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord.

We’ve been through many changes since then: singers have come and gone, invitations to sing have ebbed and flowed, the English translation of the Mass was revised, Pope Benedict XVI abdicated, and Pope Francis was elected.

Despite all these changes, our mission remains the same, and we are still committed to serve the liturgy through music, according to the mind of the Church expressed in Article 116 of Sacrosanctum concilium:

The Church acknowledges Gregorian chant as specially suited to the Roman liturgy: therefore, other things being equal, it should be given pride of place in liturgical services.

To celebrate this anniversary, here is a fresh recording of one of the chants we sang ten years ago:

Here’s to another ten years of chant. May God bless us and strengthen us to persevere.
