Resurrexit, sicut dixit ~ He has risen as he said
Regina Coeli, KV 276 ~ Mozart

Regina coeli, laetare, alleluia;
Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia:
Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
The Son you merited to bear, alleluia,
Has risen as he said, alleluia.
Pray to God for us, alleluia.


May you and your loved ones have a blessed Easter season.

-- Jerry Kavinski, M.M., Director of the St. Catherine of Siena Choir

Live-streamed Mass for the Feast of the Annunciation - Available for Viewing

On March 25, 2020, I sang with the local professional vocal ensemble Chantry for a live-stream/recorded liturgy for the Feast of the Annunciation at St. Mary Mother of God Church in Washington, DC.
In order to comply with CDC guidelines, there was no congregation, and the choir was social distancing, spread throughout the nave.  The liturgy is the extraordinary form, complete with Gregorian chant, Marian motets, and William Byrd's stunning Mass for Four Voices, including the Credo.  The mass program is below.

With the suspension of public masses in both the Diocese of Arlington and the Archdiocese of Washington, opportunities to participate in a spiritual communion through events such as this are so important, as they provide connection to our faith through spoken liturgy and sacred music.
