avid Anthony Domet was born in Toronto, Canada.
He writes, "My earliest memories of sacred music were Tantum ergo during Benediction whilst, sitting in church beside my mother, Martha; and the love my father Norman had for Handel's Messiah at which time the four of us kids knew to be silent!"
Mr. Domet began studying Gregorian chant with a small religious order in Ottawa, Canada.
Upon returning to Toronto, he joined the Toronto Oratory Choir at Holy Family Church, which continues to be directed by Mr. Peter Bishop.
He remained at The Oratory for fifteen years as a bass in the professional choir and eventually assumed the role of Cantor for the Gregorian schola.
He also sang in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress and Mozart's Idomeneo with Opera Anonymous and in Toronto's only performance of Arnold Schoenberg's Gurrelieder under Jukka Pekka-Seraste.
He also sang for three seasons with the award-winning Victoria Scholars-Men's Choral Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Jerzy Cichocki.
Mr. Domet developed a choir at his childhood parish where none had existed for over a decade.
Under his leadership this group quickly progressed through hymnody, to simple chants and polyphony.
He began composing for the new choir in an effort to bring chant and quality liturgical music to a contemporary parish.
Serving again at the Toronto Oratory's St. Vincent de Paul parish in the early development of the Schola for the Traditional Latin Mass, Mr. Domet is now Cantor for the Ordinary Form Vigil Mass at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Toronto.
He is also Cantor and Schola Master for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at the Toronto Apostolate of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP).
Mr. Domet is the publisher of the blog, Vox Cantoris.
