Gregorian Chant Group

The Chant Group meets again this Wednesday 8 May in the Parish Hall at 7.30 pm. We have some wonderful chants ahead of us, some new and some already familiar. Our psalm this week is Psalm 114 (113) ‘When Israel went out from Egypt’ which we will also learn in Latin.

Leading up to Pentecost we will sing the great 9th century hymn ‘Veni Creator Spiritus’ and the 12th century sequence ‘Veni Sancte Spiritus.’

Our new hymn is ‘Ubi caritas’ – where there is charity and love, there is God. We will also look at the Kyrie from the ancient Missa Primitiva. And of course we will continue to sing the Paternoster, In Manus Tuas, Te Lucis, etc.

Here are the youtube links.
