The Resident Choir, Cantantes in Cordibus, will lead The Gregorian Chant and other musical settings by Allegri. Its Director, Maestro Simone Ferraresi, studied at The Conservatory of Music in Ferrara, Italy, where he earned his Degree with highest honours. At The Academy of Music and Performing Arts, in Vienna, Austria, he studied with World-renowned pianist and musicologist Paul Badura-Skoda.

Maestro Ferraresi specialised in interpretation of classical composers; at The Royal Academy of Music, in London, England, where he was awarded The Diploma of The Royal Academy of Music – the highest award given by The Royal Academy. He was also awarded three special prizes for best performance in the final recital. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of The Ferrara International Piano Festival.

Saint Anthony of Padua Church is Listed on The State and National Registers of Historic Sites. The Church, built in The Victorian Gothic Style, is a pristine example of a Church untouched by modern elements and remains a true example of Roman Catholic aesthetic rarely seen today. The Church Parking Lot is located on 6th Street, between Coles Street and Monmouth Street, and is easily accessible from the Grove Street PATH, the Newport PATH and Light Rail Stop.

Through the generous support of The Very Rev. Canon Joseph Urban, Pastor of Saint. Anthony’s, this is the first time Tenebrae will be available at Saint Anthony’s. We invite everyone to attend this moving Service during the most important and significant week of The Liturgical Year.
