"God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song.
God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source.
Indeed, God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises."

-- Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship, USCCB (2007)

"The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art. The main reason for this pre-eminence is that, as sacred song united to the words, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy."--Vatican II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy


Parish Choirs at 9:30 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.
The Parish Choirs at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. sing at Sunday liturgies and during major feast days through the year. Directed by Richard J. Clark, rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 7:15 p.m. until 8:45 p.m. from September through June.

Reflecting a parish comprised from diverse people of many cultures and experiences, these choirs and instrumental ensembles lead the congregation in a very eclectic blend of sacred music. This includes
hymns and motets from the treasure of sacred music, recent liturgical compositions of the last 40 years, new compositions of many styles, and very importantly, Gregorian Chant. St. Cecilia's choir, instrumentalists and pipe organs have been featured numerous times on Boston classical radio.

The choirs are open to new singers and instrumentalists at any time. For more information or to set up an audition appointment, feel free to stop by after mass and speak with or email Richard J. Clark
