A last reminder about the EF annual Solemn High Mass at Brinkburn Priory near Rothbury on Saturday 10th September 2011 at 12 noon. The celebrant will be Fr Shaun Swales, deacon Fr David Phillips and subdeacon Fr Michael Brown. All interested priests have been invited to be there in choir.
The music will be Hassler's "Missa Secunda" sung by The Rudgate Singers of York and the Proper will be sung by the Schola Sancti Baedae in plainchant.
After Mass there will be a shared table in the priory house adjacent to the church and those wishing to take part are reminded to bring food and drink and, most importantly, chairs as these are non-existent in the house.
The priory is situated on the banks of the beautiful and peaceful River Wansbeck. You can imagine the idyllic surroundings enjoyed by the Augustinian monks in the heyday of the priory.
