Promote both the active participation of the faithful and the pride of place of Gregorian Chant in the Roman Catholic liturgy. Both have been instructed together for over a 100 years by every Pope in successive documents about music in the liturgy.

It provides a clear path forward for music ministers that have been bombarded by contradictory publications from a growing number of commercial entities.

The voice of Archbishop Sample, the Shepherd from Portland is the one the Soli Deo Gloria schola chooses to follow.
