Sneak preview

Sr. Bridget put together a "rough mix" of several clips from our work over the past several weeks so I'd have something to share with the wider world--especially since the first CD of this project won't be released until next May.... Since two of these are Marian, today's Solemnity of the Assumption is a fitting day to offer the samples.

O Filii et Filiae (just a clip!)
Tota Pulchra Es, Maria (chant, just a clip!)
Ave, Maris Stella (chant, solemn tone, just a clip!)
Crux Fidelis (chant plus polyphonic hymn setting by King John IV of Portugal: the whole piece!) (This is one of the songs that took us two days to finally nail.)

Please link to these files; we'd appreciate it if you not download them or upload them to other servers.

In a week or two, we will be having a "poll" to see what titles to give the eventual two CDs. That will probably be done on Facebook, so if you are not already a fan of the "Daughters of St. Paul Choir," join now! (We'll be posting our Christmas concert schedule soon, too: two new cities this year! Alexandria, VA and Cleveland!)
