 Sacred Music at the Proto-Cathedral reflects the long held traditions and treasures of the Church by bringing pride of place to Gregorian Chant and Sacred Polyphony. Music sung weekly at the 9:00 and 11:00am Sunday Masses by the St. James Collegium Musicum includes works by composers such as Byrd, Palestrina, Victoria, Stanford and Bruckner, as well English Chant (9am) and Gregorian Chant (11am). Polyphonic Ordinaries and Propers can be heard on Solemnities and Feasts throughout the year. The Collegium is comprised of dedicated professionals who enjoy singing sacred music within the liturgy. String, brass, and timpani players from the Vancouver symphony and other professional ensembles join the Collegium for special Masses such as Christmas and Easter.
