The Schola Cantorum of Holy Family Parish, Latrobe, a choir of young women directed by Fr. Stephen Concordia, O.S.B., assistant professor of fine arts at Saint Vincent College, has released a CD entitled Songs For The Eucharist, Ancient and New.

The CD is produced and distributed by Jade Music/Milan Records and contains 18 tracks including Gregorian Chant, Renaissance polyphony and more modern works with organ.
