This past weekend provided a unique experience for some 120 people who came to Colorado Springs to learn about the musical heritage of the Catholic Church.  Scott Turkington from St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Stamford, Ct. and our own Horst Buchholz from the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver, took the mystery out of singing square-note Gregorian Chantalleluia.png 

and Sacred Polyphony as they prepared the assembled singers, music directors and Sacred Music enthusiasts for the Mass of the Second Week in Ordinary Time, which was celebrated by Bishop Michael Sheridan.  Great things can happen in little places, and we hope the effects will reverberate all through the diocese and beyond, wherever the attendees came from.  The musical heritage of the Church is truly a thing of beauty, and hats go off to those passionate people whose mission it is to facilitate its spread in today’s Church.
