Glastonbury Pilgrimage

Dear musicians,

Thank you to those of you who sang at the 40th Annivesary Mass on Saturday. We may have been few in number, but we were happy in spirit and had a large number of compliments. Well done!

The next Diocesan Choir meeting will be at the Glastonbury Pilgrimage on 14th July. The music includes some of the music which we have used in Masses in the recent past, including the Gloria Tintinnabuli and the Walker Mass of St Paul the Apostle.

The Mass takes place in the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey at 3.30, and we will meet to arrange ourselves and look at some of the music at 2.15pm (which is when the Rosary procession begins). Unless we indicate otherwise, we will bring most of the music which is required for the afternoon, but in order to be able to ensure enough for everyone, we'll need to know how many people are coming.

Please email martin@cliftonms.com to show that you're intending to come.

There's another reason: the weather is a big factor for Glastonbury. For many years it's been dry (in fact last year was forecast to be wet, but it turned out to be one of the sunniest afternoons of the year - bring the Factor 15!) and there's no reason to think it won't be this year; however, if it is likely to be wet we'll be in touch via email to let you know - so we'll need an email address!

The music list includes:

Tintinnabuli Gloria (Geary)
Taize Kyrie
The Lord is my Light (Walker)
Salisbury Alleluia
All that I am (arr. Le Poidevin)
Eucharistic Acclamations and Lamb of God from the Mass of St Paul the Apostle
Unless a Grain of Wheat
This is my Body

There is no Rite of Healing this year, so Mass will be slightly shorter than normal.

We look forward to seeing many of you at this celebration, which is always a great and joyful occasion. Don't forget to let us know that you are coming!
