Great Schola Rehearsal

Last night was our weekly schola rehearsal... and I must say it was very good. We focused primarily on getting the ordinaries (from Mass XVII) that will be used during Lent, as well as a couple of chant hymns that will be used on Ash Wednesday and on Stations of the Cross during Lent -- Attende, Domine and Parce, Domine.

I was particularly happy with the sound the women are making. It is sounding more and more clear and unified. We continue to work on solfege... last night's 'name that tune' mystery song was Pange Lingua... aka Tantum Ergo. It didn't take long for them to get that one, although it didn't get the groans and chuckles that 'On Eagle's Wings' got before.
