I love Gregorian Chant. I have a pretty decent collection of CD's with chant on it, and I've always loved listening to it ever since the "Chant" album made Gregorian Chant trendy for a while. I fell in love with it and continued to listen to it. When I heard that they had a Gregorian Schola (choir) at the Cathedral, I was eager to learn more.
I'm still debating about whether to join the Gregorian Schola at the Cathedral, though, because I know joining is pretty much committing me to being a member of the Cathedral verses being a member of St. Jude's if that makes sense. I can still go to Saturday mass at St. Jude's, so it's not like I'd never be there. It's just that once I get my catechism completed, I want to get active in my parish, and being in the Gregorian Schola means essentially choosing the Cathedral over St. Jude's as my main church.
I want to be active in St. Jude's and I'm sure that the church won't fold up and go away if I don't go on Sundays. It means a lot to me, though, to support Fr. C's ministry. On the other hand, it would be SOOO COOL to be involved with the schola. I would love to learn how to sing the Latin songs and how to read the music.
