Msgr. Steven P. Rohlfs, Rector of Mount Saint Mary Seminary, writes:
I am pleased to present to you this collection of sacred music by the Mount Saint Mary Seminary Vespers Schola.
It is our hope that by listening to these Advent and Christmas selections, which are regularly used in our liturgies at the seminary, you may unite with the priests and seminarians of the Mount in celebrating these great liturgical seasons.
May this CD be an aid to your prayer and bring you closer to the spirit of the seasons which inspire this sacred music.
Know that you are always in our prayers — please pray for our seminarians as they prepare to serve the Lord and his Church as priests for the third millennium.
This beautiful CD was recorded in the Immaculate Conception Chapel, Mount Saint Mary University, Emmitsburg MD.
