The chant group meets next on Wednesdays in normal times from 7.30 to 8.30 pm in the Parish Hall at St George’s.
Owing to the present restrictions this groups is also presently in recess.
This is the programme we had prepared for our last lesson:
Psalm Sunday Responsary
Psalm 95 The Venite ‘Oh come let us sing unto the Lord’
In Manus Tuas (found underneath Psalm 134 Ecce Nunc)
Salve Regina (simple tone)
The first two chants of the year centred around Candlemas (2 February) – the Nunc Dimittis with the ‘Lumen’ antiphon and the Byzantine antiphon Adorna Thalamum, which was introduced into the Roman church in the 7th Century. We’ll sing a simple version of this in English (Sion adorn your bridal chamber).
Also this term we revisited In Manus Tuas and the Salve Regina (solemn).
New members are very welcome, please contact Sarah Clay on 0488 133 645 or
We meet weekly during school terms at 7.30 to 8.30 pm.
