Gregorian Chant Group

Our chant group will meet again on Wednesday 20 March from 7.30 to 8.30 in the Parish Hall.

Here’s a summary of what we can look forward to singing over the coming weeks: psalm 134 (133) ‘Ecce nunc benedicite Dominum.’  We’ve already learned this in English as ‘Behold now, praise the Lord.’ The hymn ‘Te Lucis ante Terminum’ in the Festal Tone. ‘Nunc Dimittis’ with the ‘Lumen’ antiphon in time for Candlemas on 2 February. The Marian antiphon ‘Alma redemptoris Mater’ and the Kyrie from the Missa Primitiva. The aim is to learn and sing the complete mass setting including Gloria, Sanctus and Agnus Dei.

Here are the youtube links.

2. Lumen ad Revelationem Gentium  (Nunc Dimittis)
3. Te Lucis ante Terminum  Festal Tone

We’ve sung all of them before except the psalm so you may wish to retrieve your copies and even put them in order!! However I have plenty of spares so no need to worry if you haven’t got something.

New members most welcome. Please contact Sarah Clay (Director of Music) 0488 133 645 We meet weekly during school terms at 7.30 to 8.30 pm.
