The Krijtberg masses are graced by music, at the weekends and on special occasions. A number of organists play our Adema-organ, which fills the church with its rich sound and supports the singing.
Choirs The Krijtberg community has two choirs: the occasional Ignatius Cantory and the weekly Gregorian Schola Cantorum. The latter consist of volunteers, who put their time, talents and enthusiasm at the disposal of the celebrations, and who take great pleasure in doing so. Director of the Schola is Gosse van Woudenberg.
Cantor Vincent de Lange, a professional singer and cellist, supports and encourages the community singing at the 17:15 evening mass on Saturday (in English), so that all those present can sing the English songs. In this mass Willem Stroman plays the organ.
Cantor Koen Leenaers, who is also a professional musician, supports and encourages the community singing at the 17:15 evening mass on Sunday. On some occasions he organizes the Ignatius Cantorij: young professional singers. In this mass Willem Stroman plays most of the time the organ.
