      About Schola Cantorum San Francisco

      Schola Cantorum San Francisco (SCSF) was founded in 1998 as the
      resident choir of the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi to
      provide a strong, living tradition of choral music, central to the
      Roman Rite. In performance, this twelve-voice, professional ensemble
      draws on the rich repertory of Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony
      and a variety of other sacred music composed through the centuries,
      including a growing number of commissioned works. In 2005, SCSF was
      organized as an independent, non-profit corporation and now sings for
      liturgies, concerts, and private events throughout the San Francisco
      Bay Area. Directed by noted organist John Renke, the Schola has been
      called the called the outstanding Catholic liturgical choir in
      Northern California by SF Symphony Chorus director, Vance George. The
      choir's two CDs, Pilgrimage and This Christmas Night, have been
      critically acclaimed internationally, garnering praise for "a sound
      equal to the best of the mixed-voice choirs in Great Britain."
