The Krijtberg masses are graced by music, at the weekends and on special occasions. A number of organists play our big Adema-organ, which fills the church with its rich sound and supports the singing.
Choirs The Krijtberg community has two choirs: the mixed Xavier Choir and the Gregorian Schola Cantorum both consist of volunteers, who put their time, talents and enthusiasm at the disposal of the celebrations, and who take great pleasure in doing so.
Cantor The cantor, Vincent de Lange, who is also a professional cellist, supports and encourages the community singing at the 17:15 evening masses on Saturday (in English) and Sunday (in Dutch), so that all those present can sing the English and Dutch songs respectively. In both these masses, Willem Stroman plays the organ.
Information or participation
There is always room for new singers who want to join the choirs.
Sunday morning Holy Mass at 09:30
Every Sunday morning at 9.30 am we want to celebrate a sung Mass. To be able to continue to do this we need singers and we are looking for people who like to sing. It is nice if you can read notes, but not necessarily. What we ask is commitment, repetition and positive energy. The choir is accompanied on the organ. Rehearsals weekly on the Thursday evening.
For more information: send an email to manager Gerwin Roffel >>
