 The St. James Collegium Musicum carries on the traditions of the Church by bringing pride of place to sacred polyphony and Gregorian Chant. Music sung weekly at the 9:00 and 11:00am Sunday Masses 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.
