MUSIC

We have a strong musical tradition, with sung Masses at both Our Lady’s and St Nicholas’ churches every Sunday. There is no formal choir in the Parish as we encourage everyone to sing out at Mass. Cantors lead the singing of the Kyrie, Gloria and Gospel Acclamation, as well as the Responsorial Psalm. 

 

Several times a year, we hold special 'Sing for the Lord' music mornings on a Saturday at Our Lady’s, where we learn new Mass Settings and hymns and practise Taizé and other Chants. These get-togethers are useful too when we are preparing for any special Liturgical events, i.e. Christmas and Easter, where music plays such an important role.

To listen to some recordings from recent live stream masses just click on the arrows below:

As an alternative to traditional organ-led music, mass at our Lady's is led by our instrumental group every few weeks and on some feast days. The group was formed over two years ago and has gone from strength to strength. It now includes guitars, keyboard, bass guitar, flutes, violins and singers.

 

If you are interested in joining the music group, please get in touch via the Contacts Page.
