This Weekend

Car permitting, as mine's off the road at the moment, something to do with an ECU, whatever that is. I only just bought the thing a week ago!

Saturday am: Choral Orthodox Liturgy at Ampleforth Abbey, followed no doubt by an excellent lunch. For those of you who think we're in Lent, and shouldn't be indulging, you're only partially right. The vast majority of Orthodox, and most Eastern Rite Catholics don't begin Great Lent until the first weekend in March as there is a 3 week discrepancy between the dates of Easter this year due to the different calendars in use.

Saturday pm sees a return to the Catholic Extraordinary Form for both Vespers (of the BVM) and later, Compline, both at our York base of St. Mary's Bishophill Jnr. Vespers is at 6:30pm. Compline at 8:45. New singers (and congregation) always welcome. :-)

Sunday, sees another minor (this time) calendar switch to the Ordinary Form and a trip up to co. Durham to sing Byrd's mass for 4 voices with the Darlington Ordinariate. They're desperately short of tenors, so if any of you reading this can oblige, and are free on Sunday, get in touch via the Rudgate website email link!
