The Seminary Choir
For over one hundred years sacred music has been an integral and vibrant part of St. Joseph's Seminary. The resonance of the main chapel has brought to life a brilliant repertoire performed by generations of seminarians and priests who have lifted their voices in prayer. Each seminarian is invited to move from the technique of making music to the joy of blending mind, heart, and voice in prayer. From 1896 to the present, each visitor has delighted in chanting at the Liturgy of the Hours, the careful preparation of Gregorian Chant, the heavenly Roman polyphony and hymns sung by the choir and the schola cantorum, the timbres of the organ leading and accompanying worship, and most recently, the sounds of many and varied instruments for liturgy and concert to delight the contemporary ear. The primary purpose of the Seminary Choir is to serve the liturgical life of Dunwoodie.
