Tuesday 22nd November, at 6pm, please join us for the monthly Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament Plainsong Mass, this month remembering the Roman martyr St Cecilia (c.230).
This is the traditional day on which to give thanks for the gift of music and pray for all musicians, liturgical music and church musicians in particular, and especially organists.
St Cecilia is one of the most famous of the Roman martyrs, even if the familiar stories about her are apparently not founded on much authentic material. Her feast has been celebrated since about the fourth century. Cecilia has become a symbol of the conviction that good music is an integral part of liturgy.
Down the centuries she has continued to feature in hymns, odes and art.
