Howdy! My name is Joe, and I am the author of this website as well as the cantor who makes the recordings. While I am originally from Louisiana, I am currently studying for my Ph.D. in mathematics at Texas A&M University. I entered the Catholic Church in 2008, and have been singing in Catholic choirs since that time. I came into contact with Gregorian chant for the first time when I attended my first sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form in summer 2009. Since then, I have tried as much as I am able to master the art of singing Gregorian chant. My goal in creating this website is to share with others some of the fruits of my efforts.


The Church acknowledges Gregorian chant to be specially suited to the Roman liturgy: therefore, other things being equal, it should be given pride of place in liturgical services.
Sacrosanctum Concilium, 116

Goals

  • To publish recordings of Latin and English chant settings for the Ordinary of the Mass
  • To publish recordings of Latin and English chant settings of the Propers of the Mass
  • To publish recordings of chant hymns in Latin and English for various liturgical uses
  • To demonstrate through recordings on this website that Gregorian chant is not dead or wooden, but rather that it lives and that its soul is the Triune God
