Kids and Chant
Here are two videos of three-year-old girls, the first singing the Requiem Sanctus and the second singing the Pater noster. Both have a general idea of pitch and a good grasp of the words.
Our Latin Mass choir here has, counting myself and my husband, three men and eight women. The oldest person in the choir is about 40, or not much older, four of us are in our 20s, and four are teenagers.
In contrast, there is currently no one in the parish choir, that sings at the main English-language Mass of the day, who is under 50.
I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.
