New York’s New St. Cecilia Academy for Pastoral Musicians – Masters-Level Spring Offerings in Sacred Music

How does one work for excellent music in the parish? One answer is to educate those working for the Church as musicians in the principles of sacred music and liturgy. 

A few months ago, I announced the inaugural academic year of the St. Cecilia Academy for Pastoral Musicians, a new initiative of the Office of Liturgy in the Archdiocese of New York, offered through St. Joseph’s Seminary (Dunwoodie) in Yonkers. The initiative, brought about through the work of the director of the Office of Liturgy, Fr. Matthew Ernest, is a

four-course, fully accredited program offered through St. Joseph’s Seminary in the field of liturgical music for the purpose of introducing musicians to the history, theology, and pastoral principles of liturgy and sacred music.

The new St. Cecilia Academy for Pastoral Musicians is an ambitious program is aimed at “the troops in the trenches” — parish music directors.

The course offerings are: 
  • Introduction to Liturgy (3 credits)
  • Liturgical Music: History of Sacred Music, Principles of Sacred Music,Liturgical Music Planning (3 credits)
  • Liturgical Year/Art and Environment in Worship (3 credits)
  • Principles of Chant – Theory and Practicum (3 credits)

Courses are fully accredited Masters Level Courses and may be used toward the pursuit of the Master of Arts Degree in Theology or the Master of Arts Degree in Pastoral Studies from St. Joseph’s Seminary.

As the new Director of Sacred Music and associate professor at St. Joseph’s, I’ll be teaching the course this spring semester—Liturgical Music: History of Sacred Music, Principles of Sacred Music, Liturgical Music Planning. The course is offered on Monday nights at both the Yonkers location (Dunwoodie, in-person) and Huntington (Long Island, remote conferencing).
There is a 50% discount on seminary tuition for those music directors sponsored by their parishes.
Why does the Academy exist? Here’s what Fr. Ernest had to say in his interview:

In the New York area, some parishes are able to hire trained musicians as parish music directors. Other parishes rely on dedicated volunteers to provide music ministry. While these individuals are talented musicians, they often come to these positions, both salaried and unsalaried, with limited or no formation in the principles of liturgy and sacred music. For many years, there has not been a comprehensive formation program for pastoral musicians offered in the greater New York area. Numerous requests have been made by pastors of the archdiocese for a program wherein musicians can receive the education they need to effectively serve as pastoral musicians. With the support of Cardinal Dolan, the staff of the archdiocese’s Office of Liturgy and the faculty of St. Joseph’s Seminary began to discuss ways in which this need could be met in our area. The result of these discussions is the St. Cecilia Academy.

While classes in the spring will be term-length, on-ground classes, the Academy is looking forward to diversifying its offerings and modes/formats of delivery/scheduling.

In the short term, I look forward to our summer chant intensive, which will offer a week-long, three-credit introduction to the history, spirituality, and reading of chant. Currently, we are looking to accommodate those interested students who live outside of our area and who may wish to travel to New York for this course. It is anticipated that this kind of outreach to musicians outside the tri-state area will continue through online offerings.

With respect to more long-range plans, I would like to see any expansion of the academy always retain a focus on educating and assisting parish musicians in their crucial work of leading the People of God in sung prayer. I believe that the academy’s success and future offerings should be evaluated primarily by the quality of sacred music and worship provided by our graduates in their parishes. With this in mind, it is my hope that the academy’s offerings can have a direct and positive impact on the life of the church in New York.

I am excited to begin my work at Dunwoodie and look forward to helping musicians offer their best work to the Church and to Our Lord through excellent and beautiful music for the liturgy.

Announcing Sacra Liturgia USA 2015! June 1-4 in New York

I am delighted to be able to announce the locations, speakers (among which are numbered several Chant Cafe contributors and CMAA colloquium speakers), topics, and liturgical plans for Sacra Liturgia USA 2015, to be held in New York June 1-4, 2015. The conference will include four liturgical celebrations (usus recentior, usus antiquior, and Dominican rite) which make rich use of the Church’s treasury of sacred music, including some modern choral pieces, classical polyphony, organ masterworks, and Gregorian chant. Church musicians will find much to benefit them spiritually and professionally at this conference.

contact@sacraliturgiausa.org 

From June 1-4, 2015, an international conference on liturgical formation in light of the new evangelization will be held in New York, under the title:

SACRA LITURGIA USA 2015
CULMEN ET FONS VITÆ ET MISSIONIS ECCLESIÆ

Continuing the initiative of Sacra Liturgia 2013, organized by Bishop Dominique Rey (Fréjus-Toulon, France) in Rome, this conference seeks to support the Church’s saving evangelistic and catechetical mission, as well as the continued revitalization of the liturgical life of the Church, especially in the United States. 

The sacred liturgy plays a central, vital role in the new evangelization, attracting souls to the heart of Christ and His Church. For the baptized, the sacred liturgy resides at the heart of the Christian faith and life — indeed it is the “source and summit of the life and mission of the Church.” As Bishop Rey stated at the opening of the 2013 conference in Rome, “The sacred liturgy is not a hobby for specialists. It is central to all our endeavors as disciples of Jesus Christ. This profound reality cannot be overemphasized. We must recognize the primacy of grace in our Christian life and work, and we must respect the reality that in this life the optimal encounter with Christ is in the Sacred Liturgy.”

The conference brings together a wide range of renowned international speakers including Raymond Cardinal Burke; Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone (San Francisco); Dom Phillip Anderson, OSB (Abbot of Clear Creek Monastery); and Dom Alcuin Reid (Monastère Saint-Benoît, Diocese of Fréjus-Toulon, France); among others. See the appendix for a complete list of speakers and topics.

Topics addressed at the conference will range from broad subjects like the relationship between liturgy and culture, Catholic identity, youth, the arts, and Catholic education to specific questions like the mid-20th-century changes to Holy Week and the post-Vatican-II reform of the calendar and lectionary. Lectures will take place at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College (68th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues) which is conveniently located at a subway stop. 

The conference lectures will be augmented by working sessions for those in Catholic higher education. Sponsored by The Cardinal Newman Society, the sessions will facilitate a conversation about renewing the liturgical life of Catholic colleges and universities to support the intellectual and moral formation of students and faculty in the Faith. 

At the heart of the conference are the liturgical celebrations. There will be Solemn Vespers in the usus antiquior, a Sung Mass in the Dominican rite, and Solemn Pontifical Masses in the usus recentior and usus antiquior. The Solemn Pontifical Mass in the usus antiquior on the feast of Corpus Christi, celebrated on Thursday, June 4th, will be followed by a Eucharistic procession in the streets of New York. Liturgies will be held at the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena (411 E 68th Street), a beautiful Dominican parish on the Upper East Side.

With the prestigious lineup of speakers, as well as the beautiful liturgies planned, those attending the conference will come away with a rich experience of the intellectual heritage and liturgical life of the Catholic faith. The serious intellectual inquiry into the sacred liturgy will prove fruitful for both academics and laymen alike. Attendees will meet Catholics from all over the world, and be afforded the opportunity to build good working relationships with others of those seeking to deepen their love of Christ through the Church’s liturgy, and to continue their work for liturgical renewal.

Approximately 300 participants are expected. Registrations for the whole conference will open on January 1, 2015, and part-time registrations will be possible beginning at Easter. More information about registration, affordable housing, and locations is available at the conference website: www.sacraliturgiausa.org

The conference is being organized by Rev. Richard Cipolla, Ph.D., D. Phil (Oxon.) and Jennifer Donelson, D.M.A. Media inquiries may be made to contact@sacraliturgiausa.org. 

The organizers are grateful to His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan for his kind permission to hold this conference in the Archdiocese of New York, as well as the gracious welcome of the Dominican friars and staff at Saint Catherine of Siena Church. This event could not take place without the generous support of the conference sponsors: the Knights of Columbus, The Cardinal Newman Society, de Montfort Music, Regina Magazine, Granda, Cantica Nova Publications, the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny, and the Church of Saint Catherine of Siena.

News of this excellent new initiative comes to us from the Archdiocese of New York Office of Liturgy. The courses in the Academy can be applied towards masters degrees at St. Joseph’s Seminary (Dunwoodie), and they offer an excellent path for those who are looking for more education and to advance their academic credentials as they continue their work to renew the Church’s liturgy, especially the Church’s treasury of sacred music.

Matthew Ernest, the Director of the Archdiocese of New York’s Office of Liturgy. “We are excited to offer them a program of study in the history, theology, and pastoral principles of the Church’s beautiful tradition of sacred music.”

About St. Joseph’s Seminary

St. Joseph’s Seminary and College, founded in 1896, is the major seminary of the Archdiocese of New York. Its primary mission is to serve the Church by forming men for the Catholic priesthood. Beginning in 2012, St. Joseph’s functions as the principal institution of priestly formation for the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Brooklyn, and the Diocese of Rockville Centre. St. Joseph’s also welcomes seminarians from other archdioceses, dioceses, eparchies, and other religious congregations.
Rooted in the apostolic community gathered around Jesus Christ, St. Joseph’s Seminary seeks to form future priests who will hand on the life and tradition of the Church’s faith in the context of the new evangelization of the twenty-first century.

As a complement to its primary mission, St. Joseph’s Seminary also serves the Church by offering graduate theological and philosophical degree programs to qualified students at locations in Yonkers, Huntington, and Douglaston.

A spirit of service to the Church guides all of the programs which St. Joseph’s Seminary and College provides to seminarians, lay, religious, and clergy. This spirit is strengthened by a profound sense of ecclesial communion that is fostered and expressed through fidelity to Church teaching, a daily life of prayer, the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the ceaseless invocation of the Holy Spirit, and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and all the saints.

Great New (and Free!) Practical Resource for Singing Chant Hymns and Other Popular Chants

In a trans-atlantic collaboration, a new resource has become available through the dedicated work of Schola Sanctæ Scholasticæ.

http://gregorian-chant-hymns.com is a collaboration between Schola Sanctæ Scholasticæ (Dr. Candy Bartoldus, Clare Bowskill, Julia Jones, Martina Jelinkova), St. Cecilia’s Abbey in Ryde, Pluscarden Abbey in Scotland, the CMAA, St. Peter’s Abbey in Solesmes, and the Society of St. Bede.

The main page of the website, Hymns, has an alphabetical list of some of the best-known and loved office hymns, as well as many votive antiphons and other popular chants (e.g., Adoro te, Ave Maris Stella [in multiple tones], Jesu Dulcis Memoria, etc.). Each chant comes with a fine recording, a copy of the score (for viewing on the website or easy download), and an easy-to-cut-and-paste or easy-to-download text and translation.

The Build-a-Booklet page has JPEG files of the scores as well as PDFs of the translations in clear typesetting, making it easy to copy and paste the text into a file you’re creating.

The Booklets page has the following pre-assembled booklets for download, including several hymnal-type publications a parish might print for pew use.

  1. The Mass in Latin with the Setting Mass VIII (Missa de Angelis) – abridged version – Ordinary Form of the Mass
  2. Music for the Mass and Benediction
  3. Order of the Mass: Weekday – Missa VIII (De Angelis) – Extraordinary Form of the Mass
  4. Exposition and Benediction
  5. Tenebrae (Extraordinary Form) – Holy Saturday
  6. Latin Mass Hymnal (older document) – Ordinary Form of the Mass
  7. The Mass in Latin with the Settings Mass I, VIII, XI, and XVII
The Guides page has a newly-typeset guide to Gregorian notation and Latin pronunciation as helps to newly-forming scholæ. The Resources page is also a helpful amalgamation of websites, etc., that would be useful to send as a single-link resource to new chanters. 

Musica Sacra Florida Reg. Deadline This Friday!

A liturgical and musical renaissance in Florida? Many, including myself, were dubious about it. 
When I moved to Ft. Lauderdale six years ago to take an academic position, I was moving from a vibrant diocese to a place that felt dead, like it had nothing to offer for the Catholic serious about his faith, and serious about the revitalization of Catholic culture and liturgy—very few young adult activities, a tiny, nearly-unknown Latin Mass community, very few priests interested in cultivating sacred music and reverence in the liturgy. Indeed, many have suffered for their faith in our state, as elsewhere. 
But, that was six years ago – barely after Summorum Pontificum had been promulgated.
As is the case in many other dioceses and states, the gentle example of Pope Benedict XVI inspired many, including seminarians and priests, and the Holy Spirit has prompted the hearts of many to rediscover and help revitalize the Church’s traditions and liturgy. But there is still much to be done—the impact of the new liturgical movement has still touched only a small percentage of parishioners in the pews in our state. 
One of the initiatives in Florida which has made a difference in bringing about the start of a renewal is the annual Musica Sacra Florida Gregorian Chant conference. 

For the past six years, sacred musicians from all over Florida and elsewhere in the U.S. and Canada have been coming to study the Church’s sacred music. Since our first conference at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, we’ve held the annual conference at Ave Maria University in Ave Maria, Florida. We’ve had a great time connecting with others who love the Church’s liturgy, developing our chanting skills, singing the Divine Office together, and assisting at fully-sung Masses in both the new and old rite. The conference has spawned new scholas around the state, and connections which help make special liturgies and training for sacred music more widely available in the state.

This year, we’ve added a special track for altar servers and clergy to learn the assisting roles in the pontifical Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman rite. Fr. Scott Haynes will be teaching a workshop on Thursday, May 15th and Friday, May 16th for all those desirous of learning this liturgy. Participants under the age of 18 accompanied by a chaperone are also welcome to participate (contact Susan Treacy for more details).
Also joining the faculty this year is Mr. Adam Bartlett, composer of the Simple English Propers and the Lumen Christi Missal. He will be presenting a workshop, with Mr. Jeffrey Herbert, on English chant and parish resources.
Other faculty include:
  • Mary Jane Ballou, D.S.M. – Cantorae Saint Augustine 
  • Jennifer Donelson, D.M.A. – Nova Southeastern University 
  • Jeffrey Herbert, CAGO/ChM – Saint Raphael Church, Englewood, FL 
  • Susan Treacy, Ph.D. – Ave Maria University

Special workshop tracks are available in:

  • Singing Gregorian Chant in English & a new parish music program, the Lumen Christi series
  • Gregorian Chironomy – How to conduct Gregorian chant 
  • Instruction for chant directors & aspiring chant directors on learning & teaching new chants 
  • Basic instruction on how to read Gregorian chant notation 
The conference also includes: 
  • Choice of scholae for beginning/intermediate (men & women), upper-level men, & upper-level women 
  • Missa cantata in the Extraordinary Form on Friday evening with chants provided by the Schola Cantorum of Saints Francis & Clare (Miami) 
  • Closing Missa cantata in the Ordinary Form on Saturday evening with English & Latin chants provided by conference participants 
If you’re interested in working for better liturgy and sacred music in your area, join us for this conference! It will give you ideas and inspiration, and help you make connections with other people working hard for the same goal. 
The setting of Ave Maria University makes the conference like a retreat – cheap housing on campus and a peaceful town to enjoy. The conference registration is $60, $15 for clergy, seminarians, and full-time students. 
The registration deadline is this Friday, May 2nd, 2014. More information is available at the conference website: www.musicasacra.com/florida
We hope you’ll be able to join us!
