Praying and Singing
With Our Monks
Any visitor to the Abbey may join us in our chanted prayer. We do ask that you be mindful of the spirit of unity, reverence and beauty that we strive to achieve in order to maintain a prayerful atmosphere. Please sing softly in order to blend with the monks and others around you. Let the monks set the pace and volume of the music so we may sing as one voice to the Lord. Finally, observe a spirit of silence in and around the chapel at all times. (Please be sure to silence or turn off electronic devices.)
Fr. Angelus Echeverry, choir master and organist at Saint Andrew’s Abbey, is also a composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. He is inspired by the sacred mysteries of God and his compositions range from art songs, litanies and hymns, to devotional, liturgical and large scale concert works.
