Ite, Missa Est

And another season of Regina Pacis Cantorum is in the books.  Thank you, Kathy, for your encouragement and guidance!  Thank all of you singers for making it possible.  And thank all our supporters from the churches to the families and friends for keeping us going.  Long live the music of the Church!

Tomorrow (May 23) is Pentecost Sunday!  We'll be singing at St. Peter Canisius' 8:30 AM Mass, and then both the choir and the Schola will sing at the Ecumenical Choir Festival starting at 3 PM at Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Reno.  See you there!

Gary Marks, Holy Family Cathedral, "Music of Prayer"

Another nice explanation of sacred music and the role of the organ.  (Ever notice how few Catholic churches use organists anymore, even if they have organs?)
