A year and a half ago, New Liturgical Movement did a small feature on the Schola Sancta Caecilia, a choir of young women who regularly sing at the Tridentine Mass at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their first recording, Stella Splendens, received a great deal of praise. I am confident their new album, In Bethlehem, will receive even more.
From the looks of it, the CD has not had its full launch through the usual channels, but I thought I should make all of you aware of it now so you can let the possibility of purchasing it percolate in your brains for a bit. All of the proceeds from the album will go to support Sacred Heart’s outstanding music program.
I will post more details on the disc when they become available. In the meantime, if you don’t yet own Stella Splendens, you can purchase and/or download it here. The album is also available on iTunes.
