UVS Annual Requiem Mass

On the 2nd of November, Una Voce Scotland are hosting our annual Requiem Mass for deceased members. Providentially, this fall’s in the feast of All Souls.

Schola Una Voce will be providing the music which, in addition to the chant, will include music from Victoria’s Missa pro Defunctis a4.

All are welcome to attend the Mass and members will stay for the AGM afterwards.

Cardinal Burke in Glasgow

It is great to see that New Liturgical Movement picked up on our Pontifical High Mass with Cardinal Burke on Saturday.

I am looking forward to sharing the film of the Mass and to hearing how Schola Una Voce came across in the recording. On the day, they couldn’t have sounded better. The Cardinal was very pleased with the music and took time to speak with the choir and I after the Mass.

Mrs Pearce made a cake for the occasion, in the form of a red biretta!

Schola Una Voce is the choir of Una Voce Scotland and unites singers from the Latin Mass communities around Scotland.
