Dear Diocesan Musicians,

Glastonbury Pilgrimage, 12th July

Just a quick note to remind you that the Glastonbury Pilgrimage is this weekend, and that if you would like to sing for it, you will be more than welcome.

Thank you to all those who have already told us that they can be there to sing with us, but it would be good to have more. The weather forecast looks good for the open-air Mass, which will be celebrated by Bishop Crispian Hollis.

The theme of this year's Pilgrimage is Mary, Mother of the Family and the music includes Bernadette Farrell's I Rejoiced, Christopher Walker's Bread I bring to the God of Love, Marty Haugen's Shepherd Me O God and many more hymns and songs, most of which are well known. The Mass settings include elements from Patrick Geary's Tintinnabuli Mass, Dan Schutte's Mass of Christ the Saviour and Chris Walker's New Glastonbury Acclamations. All the required music will be provided.

The choir will be led by Martin Le Poidevin.

The Procession takes place at 2.15, the Mass starts at 3.30. We will rehearse at the front of the Abbey - next to the high altar - at 1.30pm. Come and join us to sing for either or both the procession and the Mass - and why not plan to have a picnic in the grounds first?

Please let us know by email (martin@cliftonms.com) or by visiting the Clifton Music Service website's Diocesan Choir page if you'd like to come (this will allow us to gauge the appropriate amount of music to bring).
