Hi, I'm Veronica, a mother of six in the Blue Mountains in Greater Sydney, Australia.
I've been hanging around church choirs for as long as I can remember. For my 18th birthday I started attending a Latin Mass regularly, then married, started having kids, and found out that the arcane typesetting system I had learned for my undergraduate thesis in Electrical Engineering was useful for typing up Gregorian chant.
I made a book called A New Book of Old Hymns so that I could sing along with the beautiful chant alongside a translation.
Then we moved further away from the beautiful choir and I volunteered to help get some missa cantatas going in Western Sydney. Soon I found myself learning about playing the organ, singing all the propers and getting inexperienced youngsters to sing in harmony.
As of writing this, I am in the midst of a #100daysofchant challenge, recording a short piece of Gregorian chant every day. You can see the progress on YouTube, Rumble, Odysee, my podcast, Instagram, Facebook and I think that's it for now.
