Dedicated to promoting Sacred Music, Polyphony, & Gregorian Chant in the Tampa, Florida, area.....................................................
'Only an artist who is profoundly steeped in the Sensus Ecclesiae can attempt to perceive and express in melody the truth of the Mystery that is celebrated in the Liturgy'.......... From the Chirograph of the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II for the Centenary of the Motu Proprio "Tra Le Sollecitudini" on Sacred Music, paragraph 12.
One of the many obstacles faced by Chant enthusiasts with the PTB (Powers That Be) is the perception that Gregorian Chant is elitist, and unintelligible by the peeps in the pews. Now, we, having shared said pews with said peeps, know that this is not the case, since the majority of those singing in chant scholas came from their ranks. I should know; I'm one of them. :)
Here's a little teaser from the article: “When you show up at Mass, would you rather hear a chanted version of a scriptural antiphon that speaks directly to the liturgical year and season and day – all the way down to the precise reason you're there that day – or do you want to hear 'Gather us in' again?”
