New Service Schedule
27th September 2012
 


 

 

The coming weeks and months mark the instigation of the next stage in the Liturgy & Music Development Plan. Since 2007 the choirs have been singing three mid-week services of Choral Evensong, in addition to the Choral Mass and Choral Evensong on Sundays. Since 2010 the All Saints’ Singers, a voluntary adult choir have additionally sung at the 12:30pm Mass on Feast Days. From 1 October 2012 the choirs will sing a choral service each weekday, in addition to the Feast Day sung Masses and Sunday choral services. We are most grateful to our choristers, scholars, lay clerks and singing tutor for accommodating this next stage in the Development Plan. The new schedule will take some time to “settle in”, and the Music List will thus been published on a week-by-week basis as the frontispiece to the Pewsheet (rather than in the termly booklet that has been produced in recent years). Our new service schedule is as follows:
 

 Day  Morning  Evening

 Sunday

8:00am Low Mass
9:15am Matins (said)
10:30am High Mass
sung by the Boys & Men

6:00pm Choral Evensong
sung by the Boys & Men

 Monday

 12:30pm Low Mass

6:00pm Choral Evensong
sung by the Girls’ Choir

 Tuesday

 12:30pm Low Mass

6:00pm Choral Evensong
sung by the Men

 Wednesday

12:30pm Low Mass

6:00pm Choral Evensong
sung by the Boys’ Choir

 Thursday

12:30pm Low Mass

6:00pm Sung Mass
sung by the Girls’ Choir

 Friday

12:30pm Low Mass

9:00pm Choral Compline
sung by the Men

 
 
 

The schedule has been crafted to give variety in the evening services, to create a little Holy Week every week (the Thursday evening Mass mirroring the events of Maundy Thursday, the silent space of Compline mirroring Good Friday, and the day of emptiness on Saturday), and to give our Girl Choristers a regular weekly Mass. On the occasions where the Girls sing alongside the Men on Sundays, the Boys will sing the Thursday Mass in their place, ensuring that all our singers can fulfil their weekly Eucharistic obligations.

 

When the choirs are on short recess (half term breaks, post-Christmas and post-Easter) the evening services will continue, but they will be said.
