St. John Schola

San Francisco, CA

The St. John Schola is a traditional men's chant choir, whose purpose is to foster the traditional Roman chant, known as Gregorian chant, not as mere secular performance, but in the actual religious setting for which it was composed, the Traditional Latin Mass and Divine Office of the classical Roman Rite. The St. John Schola has also produced supporting music sheets and booklets, which can be downloaded free of charge, to accompany the recordings and aid small choirs in using Gregorian chant for the traditional liturgy.

Although there are many recordings made in recording studios, or sometimes in larger churches or monasteries with professional or dedicated choirs, there are few, if any, recordings made by the average small lay choir, chanting what can actually be attempted in the smaller churches, chapels, and oratories, to which the Sacred Chant can be a great addition in the traditional Roman liturgy.

Therefore, the St. John's schola, which is composed of laymen who have had no extensive previous musical training, but who have practiced each Sunday to develop the use of the chant, can serve as a practical example and model of what can be achieved in the average church or chapel setting. This schola is similar to those that have sung the chant for two millennia: peasants and nobles, farmers and clerks, the urban and the rural.

The recordings in this St. John Schola series consist of unedited, live recordings of the type of chant pieces that may be used at traditional churches and chapels. It makes no pretense to being professional, but to what is achievable, with a little work, by the average small lay choir. Our hope is that this series will serve as a practical guide for the wider use of Gregorian chant in the traditional Roman Catholic liturgy.
