Music and Choir


(608) 782-7557

St. James the Less parish has formed a choir.  The St James the Less choir sings at the 9:30 AM Sunday Mass.  Music selections are taken from the Lumen Christi Hymnal.  

The Lumen Christi Hymnal contains the core repertoire of time-tested, stable, reliable, theologically sound hymns that are suitable for liturgical and devotional use, paired with the most commonly sung and familiar tunes.  The hymns selections are the most commonly known and readily sung by all Catholics, with texts that are theologically sound and reliable, beautiful and poetic, and eminently useful for parish life.  The Lumen Christi Missal also provides simple English and Latin settings for the Mass along with English antiphons for the proper parts of the Mass.

St James parish also has a Schola Cantorum, which sings polyphony and Gregorian chant at the 11:00 am Mass.
