As a Catholic Church Music Program, music picking is very important. Pieces that are sung at the Holy Mass must be closely tided to the Liturgy and many of these pieces have been in the Catholic Tradition and History for a long time. We see Traditional Sacred Music as a treasure of the Church this treasure is to be preserved and fostered.

As the Second Vatican Council teaches, “Gregorian Chant should be given the pride of place in liturgical services” (Sacrosanctum Concilium 116). That is why we always chant the Gregorian Propers at Mass and our Scholae are founded for the purpose of learning these chants.

Another form of music that was mentioned in many Church Documents is Polyphony which was highly developed during the Renaissance. At St. Pius X, Renaissance polyphonies are often sung, especially on major feast days. These polyphonies were written specifically for Catholic Worhsip and the texts of the pieces are scriptural and liturgical. Many Catholic composers also modeled their pieces after chant and polyphony, and therefore by no means we exclude these pieces from our repertoire.
