You can get a copy of the Simple English Propers book from Amazon, which seems to have the best price right now.  (The publisher has it on backorder... Amazon has it in stock) 

It is NOT a requirement to buy this book!  It's just handy to have and might be nicer to hold.  I will print whatever music you need including the propers. 

GENERAL INFO & REGISTRATION:

The goal of our Men's Schola is to praise the Lord through music and help preserve the music of the Catholic Church, which is chant. 

We will begin our group by learning to chant the propers (the introit, offertory, and communion chants) and the Mass parts (there are a few settings we can learn). 

We will also explore, as we progress, beautiful Catholic hymnody.  

Ideally, our Men's Schola will sing at Mass once per month. 


We will be rehearsing at 7 pm on the TWO TUESDAYS PRECEDING THE 1st SUNDAY of every month with additional rehearsals added in if members would like that.  We will also meet prior to any Mass we are singing to run through the music.
