The St. Ann's Choir does a beautiful job! Congratulations to them! I'm not Roman Catholic, but I really enjoy attended St. Thomas Aquinas occasionally to hear the music, and also going to the early music concerts in Memorial Church.
Just a quick clarification: Gregorian chant is not polyphonic. Polyphonic music in the church became widely used well after the 8th and 9th centuries. In fact, there was resistance from the church hierarchy to polyphony for quite a while before it was accepted by the church.

Oops, I meant to say "attending."
