Cantorae St. Augustine
Founded in 2007, this dynamic women’s ensemble is the resident schola for the Shrine of La Leche in St. Augustine, Florida, where they sing a monthly Vespers.
In addition, Cantorae has performed at the Cathedral Basilica, special memorial services at Tolomato Cemetery, and the annual celebration of St. Augustine’s founding in 1565.
Under Mary Jane Ballou’s direction, Cantorae St. Augustine performs a diverse range of sacred music from 10th century Gregorian chant to 21st century settings of ancient texts. A special interest is the music of the Eastern Churches and the shape-note tradition of the American South.
Cantorae is available for weddings, funerals, and special celebrations throughout Northeast Florida.
