Choral Music

The choir meets Sunday mornings 90 minutes prior to the service to rehearse, generally during times the university is in session.  Its role includes leading the assembly's song, chanting the psalm and gospel acclamation, and an offertory anthem. Occasionally a full mass setting or concert is offered.
