We meet on Friday at our usual time 8.45pm at St. Mary's Bishophill Jnr. It's the Feast of SS Cosmas & Damian, class III in the EF, so that's Friday psalms, Te Lucis I and simple Salve. We also have visitors from Germany this week, so do come and say hello!

This is not too far from Morpeth, on the road to Rothbury, and is by far the furthest venue that most of us travel to each year, but it is definitely worth it, as the setting, not to mention the acoustic is splendid. :-)
For Holy Cross Day this year, we were joined by the Schola Sancti Baedae from Jarrow, a full complement of clergy and servers and about 30+ people in the congregation who made the journey into central Northumberland. The music went well.

This is traditionally an Ember Day in the EF calendar which we use when singing the Office.
What this means in practice is that we sing the psalms of the day, Te Lucis III & the Simple Tone Salve.
We meet at St. Mary's tomorrow evening at the usual time of 8.45pm, though it will probably be after 9 by the time we actually start...

Sat 14 EXALTATION of the HOLY CROSS II Cl
Which means (as you may already have guessed) Compline of Sunday!
Te Lucis I and Solemn Salve Regina, in its own right as it were, not just because it's the eve of Sunday.
Some of us may be a little tired, as we'll have been up to Brinkburn Priory in Northumberland earlier to sing a Solemn High Mass for the Feast, (see next post for details) so we may be susceptible to making the odd mistake or two, so bear with us! The important thing of course, is that the office is still sung.
