In 1990, during his tenure as Director of Music of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe, Dr. Billy Turney created a separate, independent music ensemble, an a cappella choir that brings the sounds of sacred music to chapels, missions and churches throughout New Mexico.  This month, the Schola Cantorum of Santa Fe will perform a variety of Christmas-themed programs at sites in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Pojoaque.  Billy Turney talks with us about the origins of the choir.
