Cathedral of Anchorage, Alaska: Children Learn Gregorian Chant

I have often heard it said by parents and musicians generally, that whenever children are exposed to the Latin liturgical tradition -- and here I mean this in a literal linguistic sense -- inclusive of Gregorian chant, these same children are quite taken by it. I was reminded of this when I received this video report from The Catholic Anchor wherein they report on a music camp at Holy Family Cathedral in Anchorage, Alaska, "in which young Catholics learned how to sing the music of the church, including Gregorian Chant. Children also heard from area priests about elements of the Mass and Catholic practices."
