The Cathedral Choir

The Choir of the Cathedral of the Madeleine, consisting of adult members and choristers from The Madeleine Choir School, exists principally to serve the liturgical prayer of the cathedral church of the Diocese of Salt Lake City. Established in 1909, the choir sings weekly at the 11:00 AM Sunday Mass, for Solemnities, and the 6:00 PM Holy Day Masses throughout the year. Sunday, 5:00 PM Vespers are sung by the choir during the seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Easter. The choir sings a wide variety of liturgical music spanning every period in music history-from Gregorian chant to present day music. The choir takes seriously its duty of "preserving the sacred heritage of church music," performing regularly works of Palestrina, Victoria, and Mozart.

The choir has been on three international tours that have encompassed performances in Rome, Assisi, Florence, Paris, Brussels, and Aachen-including St. Peter's Basilica, and Notre Dame de Paris. The choir also broadcasts on radio and television, airing both concert and liturgical performances. They have three CD recordings available: Sing Joyfully, Let the Bright Seraphim, and O' Great Mystery and Wondrous Sign.
