Gregorian Chant Group

The chant group meets next  Wednesday 24th October at 7.30 pm in the parish hall.

Our new psalm is 95 (94) often referred to as the Venite, and a pillar of Morning Prayer.  We’ll finish learning the Magnificat, and continue to sing the Paternoster and In Manus Tuas. Our hymn will be the 6th century Christe qui lux est et dies, and I’ve prepared a new version of this so no need to rummage around for the old copies.

Later on we’ll have a look at the church music-drama The Play of Herod, from the famous 12th century Fleury Playbook, singing some extracts from it, and acting the parts!

In the meantime here’s the link to the new, simpler Magnificat .

I look forward to seeing everyone.
