In an effort to foster creative new choral music for Mass, the University of Notre Dame has announced the Liturgy Alive competition:
In an effort to encourage composers to write music for the Church, three choirs that lead music in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at the University of Notre Dame will be awarding prizes for winning sacred choral compositions. In addition, the winning composition will be premiered at the Basilica in the spring of 2019.
Monetary prizes range up to $2,000. More information can be found at Notre Dame’s campus ministry website, here. Submissions are due January 31, 209 at 11:59pm EST. The winners will be announced by February 15, 2019.
