Album Notes
The adult choirs of Mater Dei Catholic Church have continued the theme of "light" in relation to our first album, "Lux in Tenebris", which means "light in darkness". Christ came into the darkness of the world, steeped in sin, to save us through his passion, death, and resurrection.
So also, at his birth, Simeon proclaimed Him "a light of revelation to the gentiles", so we have titled our new CD "Lumen Gentium", meaning "light of nations".
We hope our music efforts will become increasingly known, so that we may contribute to our parish's capital campaign to build a bigger church. Our parish sorely needs a bigger space to worship, and the choirs are fast outgrowing the size of our choir loft as well! We have an all-boys choir age 7-12, an all girls choir ages 7-12, and a new, mixed youth choir for ages 13-17. There are 70 children/youth involved in these choirs. We also have a men's schola and a women's schola for singing the full Gregorian propers of the traditional Catholic liturgy, and the two adult choirs who recorded this CD.
Our parish has a strong focus on a Capella music in our worship, and fostering the congregation's participation in singing Gregorian chant and hymns. We sing mainly polyphonic repertoire from the renaissance era for the major feast days throughout the liturgical year.
Thank you for purchasing our music! We hope it edifies your prayer life, and makes your Advent and Christmas meditations on the coming of Christ more fruitful. All our tracks have english translations with the physical CD.
