The Many Faces of Jeffrey Ostrowski

Jeffrey Ostrowski, president of Corpus Christi Watershed, and editor of the Vatican II Hymnal and the St. Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal for the Traditional Latin Mass, is not a new presence at the CMAA's Sacred Music Colloquium. In years past he's made movies of the goings on, taught chant on different levels, and given some of the most popular breakout lectures in the Colloquium's twenty-three year history.

What's next for this sacred music dynamo? This year the closing Mass of the June conference will highlight a newly-composed Ordinary setting by Jeffrey Ostrowski. His Mass of the English Martys has received rave reviews, and is already considered staple repertoire in parishes and Cathedrals around the country. I am also very pleased to announce that Mr. Ostrowski will be on hand at the Colloquium to conduct the combined choirs in singing his Mass.
