Our new psalm is the lovely Psalm of Ascents 121 (120): ‘I lift up my eyes to the hills,’ which we will sing to the special psalm tone ‘Tonus Irregularis.’

The hymn is the office hymn for Trinity Sunday and beyond: ‘Nocte surgentes,’ which is found in the New English Hymnal 149 tune i.

The Marian antiphon for the season is once again Salve Regina, but before we start singing that again we’ll have a look at the Ave Maria, for centuries one of the most popular prayers of Catholics and other denominations. Here is a link.

We meet next on Wednesday 27 June and then resume in August, meeting weekly on Wednesdays.

New members most welcome. Please contact Sarah Clay (Director of Music) 0488 133 645 sarahanneclay@gmail.com
