Beautiful Missa Solemnis at Brinkburn Priory

Today marked the 19th annual Mass at Brinkburn Priory in Northumberland. The Mass was a Solemn High Mass of Our Lady. The celebrant was V Rev Dr Michael Brown - the LMS Northern Chaplain - with Rev Fr David Phillips as deacon & Rev Deacon Andrew Bunce as sub deacon. The serving team was led by MC Leo Darroch & the music was provided by The Rudgate Singers of York augmented by The Westland Singers from Sunderland whose Director, Paul Dewhirst, both played the organ & conducted the choir. Our thanks are due to all involved with the day & to English Heritage who allowed us to use the beautiful building. As (almost) always the weather was kind to us although there was torrential rain in the area the night before. Congrgation numbers were down but we still managed about 40 in this very rural setting.
