About the author:
Noel Jones first sang chant in a choir of men and boys and followed that up by chanting daily masses before he was a teenager in a small town in Ohio.

Later in Germany he was organist for the English masses at the DOM Cathedral in Frankfurt.

Then, living in Italy, he played for masses at Il Duomo in Barga, Italy and produced and conducted the town's annual San Cristoforo Day celebration concert in the 11th century church.

Working as an opera coach, he has worked with singers in Germany, Italy and the United States

The choir grew from 16 to 46 under his leadership. He and Mary C. Weaver have founded Musicam Sacram, a CMAA chapter in East Tennessee and he was a participant in the 2010 Church Music Association of America Colloquium in Pirrsburgh, PA.
