Cathedral Music Notes

Shortly after I started at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore, I began writing a weekly column for the bulletin. Some of those articles are published here as they were not available on the cathedral website, but as the articles are now more easily available, I thought I would build a list here of all the articles by date.
