Based in Montreal since 1994, the Schola Saint Grégoire is comprised of male singers who perform a capella (without instrumental accompaniment). The Schola Saint Grégoire is dedicated to the performance of Gregorian Chant and to closely related liturgical chant repertories (Milanese, Ancient Iberian, liturgical dramas, etc.). While mindful of retaining musical authenticity, the Schola Saint Grégoire also seeks to adapt Gregorian Chant to today’s liturgical settings (Mass or Office).
