The Women's Choir at OLV meets from 6 to 8 pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, generally speaking. Sometimes adjustments are made to prepare for special Masses.

You might notice that this isn't a large number of rehearsals, and you'd be right! It's hard to make solid progress meeting sparsely like this, so LISTEN to the music between rehearsals. I'll share it all below. ♥

Here are some of the pieces we'll be working on for the end of the Summer Session. Please take time to listen to these so you become familiar with them.
From The Wounds Of Christ

Why We Chose This: We have a goal of building up a repertoire of communion hymns that speak about the Real Presence. In the video below, they are using lyrics designed for Good Friday. However, there are fabulous verses meant for communion and that's what we'll be using. I'll include those alternate lyrics below the video.
1. Mem’ry holds that meal of love; Jesus gathered with friends, sharing bread and wine; a new covenant was given, before he died.
2. God revealed in simple food; See the crucified one, see the humble Christ, present now as bread and wine, that you may live.
3. Come be fed, come forth in awe. Here the Body and Blood of our saving Lord makes us one with Jesus broken, and one with all.
