n essential element of liturgical worship is music. St. Augustine himself noted that a church singer “prays twice.” The Society of Jesus itself was born amid the music of the Renaissance and continues to stress excellence in this, the highest of the arts.
We invite you to experience the music of Blessed Sacrament, which is privileged to have gifted singers and instrumentalists, both professional and volunteer. They generously present engaging melodies for the entire range of Church services: Sunday Masses, special cultural and devotional liturgies, as well as weddings and funerals. Memorable events include Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall in 2012 and Verdi’s Requiem which was sung with a forty piece orchestra at the parish on Memorial Day in 2013 and at Christ Cathedral in Anaheim in 2015. In June 2016, the choir sang Mozart’s Requiem at Peterskirche (St. Peter’s Church) in Vienna.
Our musical family ranges from young adults to parishioners in their 80s. Whether you sing, play or merely enjoy listening, Blessed Sacrament has music that will lift your heart and soar your spirit!…
