Hymns, Chant, and Anthems for Use at the Holy Eucharist
The Schola Cantorum of St. Peter's Church, Chicago, Illinois; J. Michael Thompson, Director
The hymnody connected with the celebration of the Eucharist is rich and varied. From simple chant to congregational chorale to complex motet, the faithful sing the wondrous gift of God's love to the human race in Jesus, and make perpetual representation of the Sacrifice of the Cross and its saving grace in the Body and Blood of her Lord.

This collection is devoted to music intended for use during the celebration of the Eucharist. The rich traditions of the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Lutheran Churches are recorded here for the devotion of the faithful.

Selections include:

J. Michael Thompson is the director of music ministry at St. Peter's Church, where he is the founder and director of the Schola Cantorum.
