We volunteer our music in support of the Tridentine Mass.
At the Holy Rosary Cathedral
Belle Voci sings for Traditional Latin Masses downtown Vancouver BC
The Tridentine Mass is the Roman Rite Mass of the Catholic Church. We love opportunities to sing glorious music that honours our Lord and blesses those in attendance. From beautiful gregorian chant sung by our male schola, to organ processionals, to polyphony in support of the ordinary form of the Mass to sung motets to enhance the experience. Our greatest joy is singing for a solemn most high Mass. We sing every Sunday at 4pm at the Holy Rosary Cathedral in support of this most reverend Mass. We will also continue to volunteer our time and talents for many feast days. Visit the website of the Holy Rosary Cathedral
Belle Voci A cappella ensemble is led by and Latin Mass music is selected by Paula DeWit. Our Schola chants are led by Bevin van Liempt.

We want to sing for you!
We reached out to Belle Voci to do the music for our wedding Mass and we couldn’t be happier with that decision! Right from the start they were excited to work with us and were flexible in accommodating our needs and requests. Their angelic music accentuated the Mass with such beauty. It was honestly more than we could have ever hoped for! Thank you Paula DeWit and Belle Voci for making a beautiful day that much more beautiful with your music!

We were blessed to have Belle Voci sing for our wedding mass in May 2022. Paula was wonderful to work with; she provided suggestions and happily took our requests into account. When our wedding day came we were thrilled with the quality of their work. Belle Voci’s beautiful music provided a profoundly holy ambiance which emphasized the significance of the moment for us and for our guests. One word of advice: make sure to have the music recorded – you’ll want to listen to it over and over again!
-Kimberley & Edson
Wow, you absolutely blew us away with your beautiful music!!! What an incredible experience and blessing it was to have Belle Voci sing for our wedding. Your talents are a gift to the Church and we’re so happy to have you be a part of our special day. Thank you so so much again and see you soon!
