Solemn Vespers & Christmas
On Saturday, December 21 at 5:15 p.m. our very own Schola Laudis will be singing the two parts of William Byrd’s sublime Rorate Caeli, Palestrina’s setting of the Conditor alme siderum and Alma Redemptoris by Francisco Guerrero. Mr. Kevin Allen will be directing as usual. The monks will be singing the antiphon O Oriens with the Magnificat, the proper Great Antiphon of December 21. This will be a beautiful liturgy, and we hope that many of you can attend and will share this with others as well.
We present this beautiful music in its proper liturgical setting. Join us for an evening of reverent beauty at the “acoustically superb and architecturally significant Monastery of the Holy Cross.”

We have begun posting our homilies as podcasts again. We had been updating some of our internal technology, and now things are squared away. I hope to publish roughly one homily every other day until we catch. They will not appear in order, but as I get to them [Fr. Peter].
