We are a community of students and graduates, who are amazed by the beauty of liturgy. We want our songs to lead both us and the entire liturgical gathering to God. We take advantage of the extensive repertoire of traditional Church music – from monodies to contemporary polyphonic choral pieces.
Praying though song
Our main job is to conduct prayer at St. Mary’s Basilica through song. We sing during the Sunday Mass at 6:30 PM, at the Thursday Mass at 6:30 PM, and at the adoration of Christ in Old Town. We perform from September to June with exception of certain Church holidays (All Saints’ Day, Christmas, Easter, Corpus Christi). We always sing at the Paschal Vigil on Holy Saturday and conduct the evening adoration at the Lord’s Grave on Easter Friday.
Four-part a capella
We perform mainly liturgical songs in four-part a capella, mostly from the hymnals Niepojęta Trójco and Exsultate Deo and hymns of the Taizé community. The quality of our performances is important, which is why we rehearse twice a week – usually on Thursdays and Sundays at 5:00 PM. If you would like to join us, please write to the Cantor and arrange an audition.
Community and openness
Our members come from various backgrounds, including those associated with the Church – the Dominican order, the Salesian order, and the piedmont Community of Open Individuals. We are open to people who want to praise God and serve Him with us through singing.
