The Choir of Saint Ignatius Loyola, featured in the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space concert series at the Church of St.Ignatius Loyola, is comprised of New York s finest professional choral singers. Each member of the choir is a soloist in his or her own right in a variety of genres, including early music, opera, oratorio and contemporary repertoire. The core group sings a demanding schedule of weekly parish worship services in a wide range of repertoire, with particular emphasis on new works, the sacred Renaissance repertoire and Gregorian chant. The Choir, heard in recordings on the MSR Classics and AMDG labels, was invited in 2006 to be the headline chorus at the Southwestern American Choral Directors Association convention in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2009, they performed in the opening festival of WNYC radio s Jerome L. Greene Performance Space on a concert bill with René Pape, John Zorn and Ute Lemper.
