The Basilica Choir

is the professional choir-in-residence at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe. It was formed to minister to the many thousands of tourists who attend Mass at the Shrine, and to provide the very best in liturgical choral music. The Choir’s members come from all parts of the United States, and have extensive choral experience.

With a wide repertoire ranging from the ancient chants of the church to contemporary works written especially for them, the Basilica Choir is one of the treasures of Central Florida.

In addition to performing smaller works for liturgical use, the Basilica Choir has performed major works by Handel, Schubert, Mozart, Fauré, Rutter and many others.

Recordings of the Basilica Choir are available at the Gift Store.
