This is the start of a busy weekend for me, as I've been roped into singing for the Sheffield Ordinariate's pilgrimage to York in honour of St. Alcuin on Saturday. This will be in the form of a Missa Cantata, in St. Wilfrid's Church at 10.30am using the Ordinariate Rite (Divine Worship), something I've done a few times now, but am still trying to get used to! Needless to say, everyone is welcome. After Mass, the pilgrims will be going to have a pub lunch and then a few hours free time in York, before concluding their pilgrimage in York Minster where they will be attending Evensong.

More details here from St Wilfrid's own site, including the photograph that I took a couple of years ago!

To conclude the weekend, some of the Rudgate Schola will then be travelling to Doncaster on Sunday to sing what could probably be the first full Gregorian Chant Mass to have been sung there for decades, if at all. I don't know anything about the history of Catholic Choral music  & chant in the area, so I may just be wrong, but I'd fancy my chances of winning if I were to bet on us being the first. :-) If anyone knows for sure, please do feel free to post a note in the comments section.

The Mass itself takes place at 3pm on Sunday in the church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Everyone is, of course, very welcome!
