Combined choir fills the Oratory with sacred music

When you combine two fine choirs for a single event, the result can be very satisfying. This is what happened at the Consecration and Rededication ceremony and Pontifical High Mass on October 25, 2008. The Oratory choir was joined by a contingent of the St. Francis de Sales Oratory choir from St. Louis and the 30 voices proved an excellent part of the liturgy.

The St. Louis group traveled  by van to Kansas City the afternoon before and arrived just in time for a combined rehearsal. The Oratory acoustics proved very much up to the task of carrying even the most delicate sound throughout the building. 

The Oratory membership gratefully appreciates the St. Louisans for the charitable donation of their talent. Perhaps someday we will be able to reciprocate.
