Although Theresa & I were on holiday (yes, again!!) we hear that everything went really well at the Missa Solemnis on Saturday 14th September (Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross). The celebrant was V Rev Fr Michael Brown with deacon Fr David Phillips and sub-deacon transitional deacon Rev Andrew Bunce. The weather behaved itself and the music was of the high standard we have come to expect from The Rudgate Singers of York & the Schola Sancti Baedae from Jarrow. There was a reasonable congregation but we really need higher numbers to make the event worthwhile. The setting is quite magnificent & one can easily see why the Augustinian Canons selected this idyllic place. Watch this blog for notification of the date for 2014!!
