In line with our (draft) parish music strategy Towards a strategy for music published in Autumn last year, we are continuing to introduce new Mass settings, shaping a wider repertoire of parts of the Mass with which we can become familiar, and which we can incorporate into our liturgical planning. The Belmont Mass has now become a familiar part of our Sunday worship, and so this Sunday the Music Group, with singers from the choir, introduce A Mass for a Joyful Heart, which will further enrich our worship. The leaflet for Mass this Sunday, with notation (in miniature!) can be found here: Mass of a Joyful Heart 25 Jan 2015. If you can sight-read, it would be great if you could familiarise yourself with the parts of the Mass.

In the longer term, we are planning to introduce the Heritage Mass. More details will be announced.

As always, new singers and musicians are welcome. Last Sunday (18 January) the Music Group numbered 22, and gave a joyful lift to our celebration.

Thank you to all who give of their time and talent each week during our celebration of Mass.
