Mass

We use five  different  Mass settings, or Rites, each setting is used for different "Seasons" of the Liturgical year.   Most settings consist of a sung Kyrie, Gloria, Gospel Acclamation, Sursum Corda, Sanctus and Benedictus, Eucharistic Acclamation, Threefold Amen (Rite C only), and Agnus Dei.              All of these are led by the Choir.

Rite A - The New Peoples Mass, by Andrew Gregory Murray, is used during Ordinary Time.    

Rite B - The Mass of St Thomas, by David Thorne, is used during Lent and Advent.

Rite C, The Gathering Mass, by Paul Inwood, is used for all Festivals and Feast Days.

The Mass of Joy and Peace, by Tony Alonso is used for Family Mass each month.

The Walsingham Mass, is used for Festivls of Our Lady.

 

As well as singing various Mass Settings we also sing a variety of traditional and modern Hymns from the Hymns Old & New, New Anglican Edition' hymn book.   

 

At Festivals the Choir may sing an Anthem.
