Gregorian Chant Group
Our chant group will start up again on Wednesday 30 January from 7.30 to 8.30 in the Parish Hall.
Here’s a summary of what we can look forward to singing over the coming weeks: psalm 134 (133) ‘Ecce nunc benedicite Dominum.’ We’ve already learned this in English as ‘Behold now, praise the Lord.’ The hymn ‘Te Lucis ante Terminum’ in the Festal Tone. ‘Nunc Dimittis’ with the ‘Lumen’ antiphon in time for Candlemas on 2 February. The Marian antiphon ‘Alma redemptoris Mater’ and the Kyrie from the Missa Primitiva. The aim is to learn and sing the complete mass setting including Gloria, Sanctus and Agnus Dei.
Every month, usually on the first Friday, we remember at a special requiem all those whose year’s mind falls in that month, the recently departed, and any others for whom prayers are requested. Our next monthly requiem is on Friday 1 February at 5.15 pm.
