A couple of announcements from readers:

Announcement 1:

On Sunday February 25 at 11:30 AM Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, auxiliary bishop of San Diego, will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass (classical rite) at St. Mary's Church, Stamford CT. The church is one of the largest and best preserved Gothic revival churches in the Fairfield/Westchester county area.

Announcement 2:

Seeking singers who love Catholic polyphony and/or Chant

Can you sing? A Pontifical Tridentine Nuptial Mass is being offered in South Texas of which a professional CD is being recorded by a Catholic artists' institute. A documentary on the wedding is also being produced.

Are there any singers who are interested in singing some of the greatest music ever written? A schola will be singing chant and a polyphonic choir of 45-55 will be singing great music by Morales, Lassus, Josquin, Gombert, and other masters. However, it is not an excessive amount to learn: most of the pieces are very short 1-2 minutes.

Practice CD's and booklets are available. The Mass is happening in a church with a gorgeous acoustic.

The dates are April 13 (evening) and April 14 (daytime). This is happening in Corpus Christi, TX.

This is happening with the permission of the Bishop of Corpus Christi. Several diocesan priests are also involved.

Anyone who can help, please don't delay. Please E-mail:
