BV at the Cathedral

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 will be singing every other Sunday at 4 pm starting June 13, 2021 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.

Accolades

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!
