Welcome

At this difficult time for choirs, we are reduced to having two cantors singing at the 10.30am Sunday Mass. The ordinary of the Mass is a Gregorian chant setting, and the proper texts (Introit, Gradual, Alleluia, Offertory and Communion) are generally taken from the Roman Gradual. These texts, and their translations, are available in the parish’s Mass book Missale.
