Musical Preparations for All Hallows Vespers

John Polhamus and members of the Tomas Luis de Victoria Choir of San Diego rehearse polyphonic numbers in preparation for First Vespers of All Hallows, scheduled for Monday 31 October at 7.30pm at Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano, CA.

Polyphony will compliment the Gregorian chant, as sung by the Psalmists of the Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego along with Chorus Breviarii San Diego.

Vespers is the evening hour prayer of the Divine Office (a.k.a. Liturgy of the Hours). All Hallows Vespers will be followed by Exposition/Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, chanting of the Litany of Saints and the seasonal Marian Anthem.
