Gregorian Chant Group
Welcome back after the recent break. We meet this Wednesday 2 August at 7.30 in the hall at St George’s.
Our focus over the next couple of months will be the music for the feast of The Seven Sorrows of Mary (September 15th), another chance to sing the Stabat Mater from the Tenebrae service in Holy Week, as well as the Magnificat.
Our new psalm is 134 (133), one of the psalms for Compline, with its accompanying antiphon ‘Miserere mihi Domine.’ This will form part of our preparations for a special Compline service to be held in the church to mark Michaelmas which falls on September 29th. The service will be either on the Wednesday before or after the 29th, depending on people’s availability.
The other musical items for this will be the hymns ‘Christ the Fair Glory of the Holy Angels,’ and ‘Te Lucis ante Terminum’ ; the Marian antiphon Salve Regina, and the canticle Nunc Dimittis.
Having learnt the Simple Tone version version Salve Regina, it’s time now to tackle the elaborate, more famous Solemn Tone, and we’ll make a start on this on Wednesday.
Here are some youtube links:
The next meeting is Thursday 3 August at 9.45 am in the Parish Hall. We continue our exploration of the Book of Daniel.
