Your chance to take part!

Dear Diocesan Musicians,

Chrism Mass, 23rd March

Thank you to everyone who has registered to sing in the Chrism Mass ub Clifton Cathedral on 23rd March. As mentioned on the website and in our previous email, we will be having rehearsals before the day itself, so that all the singers are aware of the music before the day.

The two main open rehearsals before the day will be:

At Clifton Cathedral, next Sunday (13th March), 2.30-4.30pm.

For musicians in the north/east of the diocese there will be a rehearsal In the Fairford/Cirencester area (location to be confirmed) on Palm Sunday afternoon (20th March).

We ask that everyone who is going to sing at the Chrism Mass attends one rehearsal before the day.

The music for this year's Mass will include:

  • The Tintinnabuli Glory to God (Geary)
  • Mass of St Paul the Apostle (Walker)
  • Shepherd Me O God (Haugen)
  • King of Glory (Le Poidevin)
  • Laudate Dominum (Walker)
  • Plus a new specially composed introit anthem and much more besides!

Although we have limited space this year - due to the renovation works currently going on in the Cathedral - there is still room for more singers, so if you would like to sing, please get in touch and/or register through the website at www.cliftonms.com/diocesan-choir/chrism-mass-2016.

As usual, the choir and musicians will be conducted by Martin Le Poidevin.

Thanks again, and we hope that will see you soon.
