Music at All Saints

Music plays an important part in the worship of All Saints with the whole congregation participating fully. All Saints uses the distinctive liturgy of the English Gradual.

The Propers are sung by the cantor and congregation, to the plainchant settings, and the Ordinary of the Mass is sung to a blend of Missa de Angelis and Merbecke.

On a number of occasions during the year, we invite one of the numerous chamber choirs based within the city to join us and a fully choral High Mass is celebrated. Recent settings have included the Missa Brevis by Palestrina, Byrd's Four Part, and the Little Organ Mass by Haydn.

During 2006/7, we are pleased to be able to continue and develop our links with various Chamber Ensembles particularly the Ebor Singers directed by Paul Gameson who will be providing fully choral settings of the Mass on the feasts of; Michaelmass-September 29th; All Souls-November 2;
Good Friday-April 6 Ascension Day; and St Peter and Paul-June 29th.
