We are Gotham Chant

 

What does it mean to sing 1,000-year-old chants in the middle of New York City? In one of the trendiest, zippiest zip codes on the planet? Chant happens all around us; people from all cultures and faith traditions chant--in New York, you hear chant in yoga classes and taxi cabs, rock shows and churches. Our music is a statement about finding timelessness and universality, despite our specific time and place.

The Gotham Chant recording project is based on the chants we sing at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. We call it Gotham Chant, alluding to our SoHo (downtown Manhattan) location; the moniker Gotham dates from 1807, shortly before the cornerstone of the Basilica was laid in 1809.
