Choir Members Needed

Choir members have asked us to post a notice that singers are needed for the Oratory choir and we're pleased to comply with the request.

If you love to sing...and especially if you have singing experience in a choral setting, your talent is needed in the choir loft at Old St. Patrick.  All parts: SATB are needed. The Oratory choir specializes in Gregorian Chant and traditional hymns of the Catholic Church, in addition to some of the more challenging harmonic and polyphonic music patrimony of the Church. We've heard it expressed by some that traditional Latin Mass music is comprised of "hits of the 16th century".  Those who love the Extraordinary Form enthusiastically agree with this assessment of the repertoire.

You do not have to be a member of the Oratory, just love to participate in singing challenging and beautiful sacred music on a weekly basis. The choir sings at High Mass most Sundays at 10:15 a.m. and on other special feasts of the Church liturgical year. Rehearsals are weekly on Wednesday evenings at the church.

Your talent will be appreciated. Please let Canon Avis know if you have an interest or you may contact the Oratory Choir Director, Patrick Watkins.
