The Cathedral Series focuses on publications that particularly fit the needs of Catholic Cathedrals. This series is also popular with Parishes, as well as schools looking for quality literature that comes from the rich tradition of liturgical music. Several composers in the Cathedral Series represent some of the most revered names in liturgical music composition. Composers such as Leo Nestor, James Biery and James Chepponis have helped make this series a vital source for great literature.  Dr. John Romeri is the editor.  They are available through MorningStar Music Publishers

RECORDINGS

DE ANGELIS VOCAL ENSEMBLE
MATTHEW GRAY, DIRECTOR

Genesis, Renaissance and Reincarnation

Ancient cultures used symbols (notations) to visually represent aurally-understood melodies, and, as most varied and complex compositions were performed a cappella, sacred texts were set to music to become chants. Join us in our musical collaboration with the Norbertine Fathers of Orange County’s own St. Michael’s Abbey as they sing Gregorian Chant, echoed by the de Angelis Ensemble’s Renaissance and Contemporary motets on these ancient themes.

Highlights
William Byrd / Ko Matsushita, O Lux Beata Trinitas
Thomas Tallis / Ēriks Ešenvalds, O Salutaris Hostia
Robert Parsons / Javier Bustos, Ave Maria

Purchase your copy today.  Southern California's finest Vocal Ensemble

And hear them LIVE at Christ Cathedral this coming March 10th, singing the great music of the Lenten Season.   CLICK HERE for tickets.
