The choir just concluded the Annual General Meeting 2018 today, followed by dinner after the usual Saturday evening Mass.
One of the most striking thing that came up, was how much (and how fast) the choir had grown. At the end of 2016, we had only about 16 members. And now, in February 2018, we have about 40 choristers! Amazing! We are indeed grateful to God for his kind providence.
Already 2018 is looking to be another meaningfully occupied year. We already have a few performance engagements and collaborations, some key liturgies throughout the year, the annual choral workshop in May, plus a possible choral exchange! We’re looking forward! 🙂
We’re hoping to grow our Soprano & Alto sections… so Ladies, if you’re open to giving it a shot, feel free to let us know. Email us, or visit us after the Saturday 5:30pm Mass at the Church of Sts. Peter & Paul, 225A Queen Street, Singapore. We’d love to hear from you (pardon the pun!)
It had been a hectic carolling schedule for the choir, and we loved it! The last time the choir had carolling engagements with commercial organisations was at least 20 years ago. And with the cycle of the life of choirs, changing music directors, the ups & downs of enthusiasm (or lack of)… the choir finally pulled together since 2016 and created the experience of sharing their repertoire with the public!

Wishing all our friends out there a Merry Christmas… and wherever you may be, that you’ll be home for the holidays with your loved ones 🙂
The choir would like to share something we recorded in preparation for the season of Christmas. Enjoy!
Would any music that sings about God be always considered sacred? Perhaps not. There are songs composed that sing about the disappointment, anguish, and disregard for God. Those might not be immediately be recalled as “sacred” or “holy” or even deserving to be sung at the Mass. Read More…
As the Carmelite Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel approaches, here’s an ancient chant that was of the old monastic order of the Carmelites.
Translations in English are found in the music sheet for the Chant Notation.
