September Gregorian Chant workshop

Below follows a letter from Bill Costa of Dallas Texas who has offered to conduct a Gregorian Chant workshop for those who are interested. The Sacred Heart Parish Schola will be attending.

I would like to confirm the place, the dates and times for the September, 2010, Gregorian Chant Workshop.

The Workshop will be held at St. Bridget of Kildare Catholic Church in Nyssa. Oregon.

The dates and times:

1. September 16, 2010, starting at 6:30 PM unti18:00 PM, followed by a Missa Cantata of the Extraordinary Form for those who wish to attend a sung Mass.

2. September 17,2010, starting at 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM, followed by a Missa Cantata of the Extraordinary Form for those who wish to attend a sung Mass.

4. September 18, 2010, starting at 4:00 PM unti16:00 PM, followed by a High Mass of the Extraordinary Form to be sung by the participants of the workshop.

Father Andrew is extending an invitation to all of the participants of the Workshop to sing the Ordinary of the Mass on Sunday morning -that is the Asperges, Kyrie, Gloria, Credo I, Sanctus, Agnus Dei and Ite Missa Est of Mass XI, Orbis Factor- at St. Bridget's on Sunday morning, 9:00 AM, September 19, 2010.

I am enclosing three (3) packets of printed material and an envelope containing a CD:

1. The complete music for the Ordinary of the Mass on Sunday- Mass XI, Orbis Factor:

a. Asperges Me

b. Kyrie

c. Gloria

d. Credo I

e. Sanctus

f. Agnus Dei

g. Ite Missa Est

1. The complete music for the Propers of the Mass for the Extraordinary Form of the Mass on the 17th

2. Sunday after Pentecost:

a. Introit

b. Gradual

c. Alleluia

d. Offertory

e. Communion

3. Handouts for the Workshop itself and for the participants to keep at the conclusion of the Workshop.

4. The CD in the envelope is a recording of a men's schola singing the Ordinary of the Mass as mentioned in number 1 above.

It would be OK to start to learn the Ordinary parts of the Mass, if you would like. Use the recording to help you learn the music.

The participants will learn only the Introit, Offertory and Communion of the Propers of the Mass. I have included them for their information. I would be willing to spend some extra time outside of the Workshop to teach the Gradual and Alleluia to those who would be interested.

I hope that all of this material will be of help to you during the Workshop.

Sincerely yours,

William F. Costa, Jr.

Dallas, TX
