In McLean, Virginia, Gregorian chant has experienced a revival at the parish of St. John the Beloved. Under the leadership of the pastor, Fr. Christopher Pollard, Gregorian chant is heard at all parish liturgies and is also taught as part of the parish school curriculum.
Catholic News Service has created a series of videos about the parish program.
We have a YouTube playlist created here: YOUTUBE PLAYLIST
In addition, the UK newspaper Catholic Herald has a companion article from CNS.
We’re expanding the CMAA Shop web site to include not just event registrations, but also CMAA books and memberships.
Now, in one site, you can find information on CMAA’s original editions and our reprints of classic works: essential performing editions of plainchant, works of scholarship, and valuable aids for music instruction. Have a look around!
A bonus: most book orders of $100 or more are eligible for discounts of 10% or more: for larger orders, the discounts run up to 25%.
