Chant Training Day in St George's Cathedral Southwark
(Updated: full schedule below.)
The London coordinator of the GCN is organising a Chant Training Day for Saturday 11th February, in Cathedral: the Catholic one, St George's Cathedral, Southwark. It will be led by the Cathedral's Director of Music, Nick Gale, and will follow a chant Mass in the Cathedral in honour of Our Lady of Lourdes: it is the anniversary (and the feast) of her apparition there. It will conclude with Vespers.
Mass is at 10.30 am; the chant training will begin at 11.15. Vespers will be at 4.30pm.
Singers will be divided for part of the day between more and less experienced groups, to enable everyone to get the most out of it.
