Gaudete Sunday in St Bede's

On Sunday I was at St Bede's, Clapham Park for the monthly polyphonic Mass. It was of course Gaudete Sunday, and Fr Andrew Southwell was wearing some very splendid Rose vestments. Fr Andrew Pinsent was guest preacher.

Sunday Missa Cantata in Oxford

IMG_8349 On Sunday Fr John Saward celebrated a Missa Cantata at 12 noon in SS Gregory and Augustine's in the Woodstock Road. Although we are blessed with many traditional Masses in and around Oxford, a Sung Mass on a Sunday is rare, and Fr Saward is now celebrating one each month.
The Mass was accompanied by the Schola Abelis, with polyphony: Cristobal de Morales's five-part  Missa L'Homme Armee (the Armed Man).
