The Solemn Mass Choir (11:30 A.M. mass)

The St. Dominic Choir is a group of singers and instrumentalists, both professional and volunteer, dedicated to performing the repertory of what the Second Vatican Council described as "the vast treasury of sacred music. The choir performs the full spectrum of liturgical music, including Gregorian Chant, polyphonic Mass settings, and motets and anthems. The repertory spans the centuries of the Christian era, written by the greatest composers of every age. The choir presents these works at the Solemn Mass every Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m. at St. Dominic's Church, as well as on solemnities and Holy Days. The goal of the choir is giving performances of sacred compositions within their true liturgical context to enhance the prayer of the people. We encourage the commissioning and performing of new works by local and internationally known composers. A glance at the music calendar page of this website will show the broad range of music that we perform (View Schedule). The choir has also recorded two CDs of sacred music of composers such as Palestrina, Victoria, Josquin, Buxton, Viadana, Tallis, Byrd and Holst (View Recordings). The choir also presents concerts and is available to sing at weddings. New members are welcome, and are invited to contact Simon Berry at 415-674-0430 or simon@stdominics.org.
