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.
