Definitely. At least three times a year we do Masses with orchestra. Not sure what the plan is for Easter Sunday. Maybe Mozart's Missa Solemnis. According to wiki, it calls for three trombones! http://imslp.org/wiki/Missa_solemnis_in_C_major,_K.337_(Mozart,_Wolfgang_Amadeus)

And JCDD- thanks for the feedback. Really really thrilled you liked it but even more that your toddler did. One of my issues is that the Church has abandoned its musical patrimony for a combo of bad folk, bad show tunes, and bad children's music. It is good to hear that a child responds to this beauty.

Will there be a need for instrumentalists?

Mao, thanks for putting this together. It really is a special treat. I am not Catholic, but this got me into Church and I really enjoyed it. My toddler especially loved the music.

Thanks everyone for your feedback (and no snark!). We are very excited that two people are coming by this evening to check out the group. Since we are just starting the Lent and Easter stuff now so this is perfect timing.

Have attended the mass a few times at Holy Rosary.
The choir is always very good and sings almost everything in Latin.
Too bad they had to leave. St. Anthony's is really beautiful. I don't know if the acoustics
are as good as Holy Rosary which are quite good.
I like to attend this type of mass with the singing
and incense, bells and whistles. It makes me feel like
I really went to church. My father told me that's what it was
like when he was growing up. He went to catholic schools I didn't.
I'll check out St. Anthony's because the website says it
has historic designation and it's always a pleasant experience. Good luck to the choir.

Thanks for the positive feedback. We're still getting our bearings but have big plans.

I have no singing skills, but I look forward to checking out the mass at St. Anthony's.

Dear Yvonne:

Yes, the Latin Mass is now at Holy Rosary. Long story short, the pastor at Holy Rosary had moved the Latin Mass to 1:00 in the afternoon which was going to decimate its congregation. He also insisted on the parish organist handling the music for the Latin Mass and he was significantly less competent than Simone. Fr. Urban graciously offered a morning slot to the congregation. While many of us are sad to leave Holy Rosary, we do appreciate that St. Anthony's is a beautiful church and is entirely intact. FYI, this Sunday and next, the Mass is at 9:15 am. Thereafter, its at 9:00 am.

See you soon.

Mao

While I have no interest in joining, occasionally, I do attend the Latin Mass, so it is now in St. Anthony's Church, and not Holy Rosary? Is this permanent?

Cantantes in Cordibus (CIC, Singing from the the Heart) is auditioning new singers. While sight readers are preferred, anyone who can blend is welcome.

This group of 18 or so voices sings for the Latin Liturgy which recently moved from Holy Rosary Church to St. Anthony's next door. Rehearsals are Wednesday evening at 6:45 PM and the choir sings for the 9:00 am liturgy every Sunday and the 5:30 PM liturgy on Holy Days. Our repertoire covers the whole history of Western Sacred Music- from Gregorian Chant to Lauridsen. However, there is a definite Renaissance focus (Palestrina, Victoria, DePres, Morales). We usually do a symphonic Mass with orchestra for Christmas and Easter (Mozart, Haydn, Schubert). Our director is the very talented Simone Ferraresi. http://home.simoneferraresi.com/

Our members range from devout Catholics to agnostic Jews who are in thrall to this music. It is fantastic voice training too for pop singers.

Stop by any Wednesday at the begging of rehearsal at 6:45 PM to give it a try. Our rehearsals are in the building next to St. Anthony's Church on the north west corner of the intersection of Monmouth and Sixth Street. Or call Dan at 201 406 9960 for more information.
