LARGE CLASSES STUDY THE
GREGORIAN STYLE OF MUSIC
Members of All Catholic Chareh
Choir In Two Omaha Take
The attendance that haa thus far
greeted the Gregorian summer school at
Bl Mary Magdalene' hall. Nineteenth and
Dodge streets, has more than met the an
ticipations of the Instructors. A class of
forty-five constitutes the morning organ
ists' school, with about twenty at the aft
ernoon school and 170 at the evening sing
ing classes. These singing classes come
from all the Catholic choir of Omaha and
South Omaha churches and the singers are
enthusiastic in th work. Father Gregory
Huegle, O. 9. B., is the teacher of accom
paniments and Father Blglsbert BurkhardT
O. S. B., teacher of singing.
"The first idea of th school Is to pro
duce true church music, not sensual or
operatic and still not merely religious, but
It must be liturgical and related to the
sacrificial mass, with the sacrificial Idea
ever present," said Father Huegle.
"It was Motu Proprlo, who on November
22, 1903, gave the true Idea of the Gre
gorian chant, which is the standard by
which all Catholic church music must be
measured. Th pop has decreed that the
Gregorian chant must be the principal fea
ture of the repertoire of Cathollo church
muslo a far as posutble. The Idea I to
divest tt of nationality and make It uni
versalcatholic. It 1 divested of meas
ured technique, but is specially auditory
and declamatory. The ultimate hope Is
to Induce congregational hinging. The Idea
is not a new one, but simply a restoration
of the old oongregatlonal idea of 'singing
that prevailed in the Catholic church uni
versally prior to the fourteenth century."
