The Liturgy of the Church unfold as an unending rhythm of worship and prayer. Since pre-Christian times people have offered psalms, hymns and sacred songs to God in prayer and joyful praise.

This recording of Mass and Vespers in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in Gregorian chant with polyphony by Tomás Luis de Victoria, is performed by the Gentlemen of the St Mary's Cathedral Choir, Sydney. The choir is known as one of Australia's great choirs and is Australia's oldest permanent musical organisation.

Its history dates from 1818 when a choir of boys and men, formed to sing at masses celebrated for Catholic convicts, became the 'court house' choir.

Plainsong and Renaissance polyphony remain the bedrock of the choir's repertoire which continues to expand through a commitment to the performance of contemporary liturgical music.

This recording supports the charitable work of Aid to the Church in Need.
