More about Brinkburn

Last Saturday, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross saw a goodly complement of Rudgates heading up to Northumberland to sing in what is unquestionably (IMHO!) our favourite venue of Brinkburn Priory.

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.

Here's a link to the Offertory Motet, Crux Fidelis.

And some of Mark's excellent photos. I shall have to persuade him to upload some of the video taken that day as well!
