Gregorian chant and the Roman liturgy will be the focus of a conference Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 27-March 1, at the Brigittine Priory of Our Lady of Consolation.

Lectures will be led by Dr. Lynn Bissonnette-Pitre, who will discuss the tradition and history of the sung Mass and Gregorian chant; documents of the church pertaining to Gregorian chant; and the beauty and form of the traditional music.

Bissonnette-Pitre sang in the St. Mary’s Cathedral choir for 12 years, and served as director and cantor for the Gregorian Chant Schola, Cantus Angelorum, a group that chants regularly for the Ordinary and the Extraordinary forms of the Roman Liturgy.

Father Eric Andersen, local priest, and Yumiko Rinta, who has been cantor and co-director of Schola Cantus Angelorum.

The conference will include a tutorial for priests and deacons who want to learn to chant the priestly parts of the Mass.

Four Sung Masses are scheduled during the conference: Feb. 27, 7 p.m., Ferial Mass celebrated by Father Mark Bentz; Feb. 28, 8 a.m., Ferial Mass for Sexagesima, celebrated by Father Anderson; and March 1, 8 a.m., Votive Mass for our Lady, celebrated by Father Theodore Lange. Archbishop Alexander Sample will celebrate a fourth Mass. Because of the limited seating in the chapel of Our Lady of Consolation Priory, the attendance at all four Masses will be reserved for the conference participants.

Registration is $60.
