Colloquium Day 4

Another whirlwind day at the Musica Sacra Colloquium!  Today we had Mass, Vespers, and Compline at the breathtakingly beautiful Cathedral of St. Paul in downtown Pittsburgh.  This church makes our own Sacred Heart  in Church in downtown Tampa seem almost frumpy in comparison!  The Faure choir rehearsed in the loft for tomorrow's Solemn Requiem Mass.  The Mass Ordinary today was sung beautifully by the Palestrina choir.  After supper at a nearby Indian restaurant, we went back to the cathedral for Vespers, celebrating the Visitation of Our Lady, followed by sung Compline.
