To the St. Alban fellowship, please attend to this invitation from Joel Morehouse.  Both he and Fr. Lioi are good friends of the FSA, and we encourage our members and friends to attend if possible.  Note also that our organist, Aaron James will also be playing, and Bishop Matano will attend.

Hello musical friends, 

The Choir and Schola of Saint Mary's Church (15 Clark Street, Auburn, NY) invite you to join us in celebrating the Assumption of Mary on August 15 at 7:00pm. 

As per our usual custom, our church will be filled with over 2500 fresh roses. Solemn Mass will have two choirs and two pipe organs, with Gregorian Chant and Sacred Polyphony.  We welcome capable singers to join our choir and our schola.

For that day, we welcome Aaron James (a DMA/Ph.D candidate at Eastman) and Jonathan Ryan (Internationally known organ recitalist) with us as guest organists, not to mention Bishop Salvatore Matano himself and numerous clergy.

SCHOLA rehearses on Saturday mornings from 8:45 to 10:00am. We will be singing the following chants: Signum Magnum, Alleluia, Assumpta Est Maria, Beatam me dicent, Missa VIII de Angelis, etc.

CHOIR will rehearse on the following dates: July 31 at 7:00pm, August 7 at 7:00pm, August 12 at 5:00pm, and August 14 at 5:00pm, and then a warmup August 15 at 6:00pm. The CHOIR will be singing Regina Caeli (Lotti), Ave Maria (Victoria), St. Magnus hymn and descants, Salve Regina Caelitum and descants, and Missa VIII de Angelis.

If you're looking to make a day of it, we will also have a wonderful organ recital with Jonathan Ryan at 4:00pm.
