Sunday, Oct. 6


The St. Ann Choir

The St. Ann Choir will commemorate its 50th anniversary with a singing of William Byrd's Mass for Four Voices at St. Thomas Aquinas Church at noon.

The St. Ann Choir began singing the music for the traditional cycle of the Church year at Sunday Masses in 1963, before radical changes to Roman Catholic liturgy and music occurred after the Second Vatican Council.

The choir has since 1963 performed Gregorian chant and polyphony in weekly liturgies in diocesan churches—even while traditional liturgical music was out of favor in the Church for most of those years.
