The CD features music by master composers like Bach, Mendelssohn, and Widor, but also includes famous
orchestral pieces arranged for organ such as Debussy’s Claire de lune, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.

This new 2017 CD release is available only at St. John Cantius in Chicago. We’re enclosing an order form for your
use. Or order CD’s by contacting Fr. Scott A. Haynes, SJC, at BirettaBooks@gmail.com or 312.273.7373 x 111.

RICHARD SPOTTS SERGIO ORABONA

A native of Batavia, Illinois, Organist Jonathan Rudy is completing his Doctorate Degree in Organ at Indiana
University.

Texas. Listeners will enjoy the rich sounds of a great pipe organ on this new recording made right here at
Chicago’s historic St. John Cantius Church!
DVD OF THE MOZART REQUIEM PONTIFICAL LATIN HIGH MASS

Each year on All Souls’ Day, November 2, people gather at Chicago’s historic St. John Cantius Catholic
Church for the Latin High Mass and to pray for the repose of the souls of the faithful departed. The music
that accompanies this poignant and beautiful Liturgy is the famous Requiem of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,
sung by the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra of St. John Cantius Church. This DVD presentation of Mozart's
Requiem for All Souls’ Day inspires us to pray for the dead—one of the spiritual works of mercy.

We hope that as you watch this DVD you will enter into the beauty of the Sacred Liturgy through the window
of sacred music. The Gregorian chant, sung by the Schola Cantorum of St. John Cantius, and the awe-
inspiring music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, presented by the St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra, are a window
through which you are invited to peer—to catch a glimpse of God’s glory. This new 2017 DVD release is
4
available only at St. John Cantius in Chicago. An order form is enclosed. You can order DVD’s also by
contacting Fr. Scott A. Haynes, SJC, at BirettaBooks@gmail.com or by calling 312.273.7373 x 111.
