Missa Choralis Series

Translated from Latin, Missa Choralis literally means "Choral Mass."  This simple translation, however, only begins to illustrate the wide breadth and variety in voices, instruments, and ensembles that contribute to The Basilica’s music series at the 5:00pm Saturday Mass of Anticipation. 

The Missa Choralis Series was created in response to the many requests received from local choirs and instrumental ensembles as well as those from  around the region and country. 

Today, the Missa Choralis Series reflects the vibrant musical diversity of our vast region and global community while fostering the stewardship of musical arts—choral and instrumental alike. A rich variety of choral and instrumental musicians from many locales have visited The Basilica to share their inspired musical gifts, leaving behind a lasting artistic impression for many who come and listen. 

All are welcome to view the downloadable brochure for the schedule of all visiting musicians and ensembles in this season's Missa Choralis Series. Check back in the weekly Upcoming Events section on The Basilica website home page for regularly-updated information.

Please join us this season in liturgy and song to share in this offering of praise to our Creator for everything that has breath!
