The abbey sounds lovely, but still, it's a schola. I wish more choirs around here would discover chant, but I'm afriad that if Adorote Devote scares them, an actual Mass would be terrifying.

Which is still a schola? The nuns or the "choir" I am part of.

The irony is that chant is easier than polyphony. Besides, after rehearsing and singing a particular ordinary for several weeks, it tends to become second nature.
