This week, the annual CMAA Sacred Music Colloquium is being held at the beautiful Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City. My eldest son is attending for his third year, this time accompanied by my eldest daughter, my wife as the chaparone, and baby Theodore. The Colloquium is an incomparable experience for anyone interested in the Catholic liturgical and musical tradition. I attended myself three years ago. When you get 200+ of the most talented liturgical musicians together for dinner in the same room, what should you expect? Music, of course! Angelic, ethereal voices, in surround sound. I haven’t been the same since that first night in Pittsburgh.
Look for updates at The Chant Cafe.
Here’s a little taste of the event:
