ROSARY AFTER MASS
Some of our congregation say the Rosary in church starting a few minutes after the end of Mass. This is optional, but please stay and join in if you would like to.
Today, Septuagesima, sees the start of the pre-Lent period, perceived very obviously in musical terms by the lack of Gloria in the Ordinary and the disappearance of the Alleluia from the Propers. Sung Masses today and on 24th February will include Mass IV and a Creed melodically evocative of the penitential season – also no. IV.
Please note that I am going to give a talk on Gregorian chant on Sunday 24th March, from 10.30 – 11.30 in the Patrick Donegan Room. It will be a multimedia presentation with slides and musical examples. All welcome! Matthew Schellhorn, Director of Music.
