I always argue with musicians when they tell me chant is too difficult for people to learn. They see the notation and their modern music minds recoil. The notation in reality is actually simpler and easier than modern music and the chants are closer to human speech than most other modern music. 

In this video, Johnny, who is 6, sings the Regina Coeli after going to chant camp at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park. 

Divine Praise

divine praise

Do you want to pray the Divine Office? Do you want to chant the Divine Office with your family, your school, or your group? Many can attest to how difficult this is to do without the proper materials. Fr. Samuel F. Weber, O.S.B. has prepared a book to get you started. Divine Praise contains the prayers of the Liturgy of the Hours pointed and ready to chant. You can download it here: Divine Praise. Say a prayer for Fr. Samuel and I when you use it. We appreciate the spiritual help. God bless, -Fr. David Voss
