The EWTN Choir sang beautifully at the EWTN televised Mass this morning. Check out the Alma Redemptoris Mater (by Palestrina) sung as the offertory today for the Feast of St. Anthony, Abbot.

  1. I’m trying to get information on the members of the EWTN Mass choir. I’ve gone through all the posts on Google and find nothing except for info on Lucas and Derek. Who is the back up cantor?

    The choir is wonderful. They really enhance every Mass, and there are a number of people asking for more info on the members. Would appreciate information on Google so as to be accessed by the public.

    1. What is the name of the back up cantor and why doesn’t the camera focus on him when he is singing !!! There was a day in Sept or October when he sang 2 songs in latin & the camera never focused on him!!!! The whole choir is the greatest!!! I like that the Choir Director/Organist gives each of them a chance to sing solo!!! I not only speak for myself but also for others from our parish & also people who depend on EWTN for the MASS due to the fact that they can not go to MASS because they are ill or just homebound!!! They all marvel at how wonderful the choir is!!!

    2. The Choir on EWTN Mass is awesome!!! What are the backgrounds of these talented and gifted people? Organist is especially inspiring and so committed to his choir.. Even conducts with left hand at times while playing with right hand! He puts his heart and soul into his leadership – they all do!!! I love to sing and do play the keyboard so do appreciate what they do. I was a cantor for several years and organized the singing which was a joy! I would like to know more about the backgrounds of these wonderful people.

  2. I agree, and would also like to see more of the choral music available by cd or stream. I like collegium regale on YouTube, but I would prefer to listen to the EWTN choir.

  3. I love this choir. They sound like angels from heaven. Today is Sunday, October 29, 2017. After Father Anthony’s homily today, the hymn sung was exquisitely beautiful. The Holy Spirit surely comes through them to us.☺️

  4. How about if the EWTN Choir present a concert on EWTN TV. I’m sure there will be many viewers. They are really great with their choir master. Makes the mass more HOLY! Thanks

  5. I just recently got cable back, after a lapse of some years. From the very first day when I was able to watch EWTN again, I was amazed and impressed by the improvement in EWTN’s choir and music selection, and in the cantors’ skills. Whoever the choir director is, he is doing a really great job with his small but hard-working group! And it is obvious that the organist is also doing very well, and that the priests and deacons have improved at doing chant. Heck, even the congregation is chanting and singing well, which is what you’d expect with such a good example!

    I realize that choirmembers and religious naturally dislike being conspicuous, and that nobody wants to intrude on people’s privacy. But it would be nice to know a bit more about these “fellow parishioners”, that’s all.

    And I agree that a small recital concert for the choir would be nifty. Let us know if there will be one!

    But you realize that there are all sorts of EWTN shows, but no music instruction ones. And Vatican II mandated that Catholics should be instructed in singing, and in how to chant the responses. So if that choir director of yours ever has spare time (heh, like choir directors ever do!), it would be neat to have something like that.

  6. The song that was sung after Communion durning today’s Mass 3/6 was so beautiful! I listened to it several times. What a gift it would be if the viewing audience could purchase all music sung from this amazing choir. Today these two men sang beutifully, my tears were flowing.

  7. I love the choir solo. I wonder how the members are picked to sing certain days. I see a choir member who attends mass every day. Wonder why he is not singing with the choir. I think all members should be given a chance to sing a solo. Some might not want to. What is the name of the member who is there all the time. He is tall, brown hair. What a beautiful voice. I agree with some about the camera needs to focus on the choir members when they are singing like a solo. I truly enjoy listening to the choir. Yes also the ladies need to do the same as the men and put their hands together when not holding the book. I also wonder, are the members all catholics? If so why are they not receiving the host. Your are doing a super job.
