I am looking forward to directing the music for this Mass on Saturday, my first event as Chairman of Una Voce Scotland. Come along to hear music by Hassler, Victoria, Lotti and Buxtehude as well as all of the gorgeous plainchant.
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.

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!

Vespers and Benediction are a perfect opportunity to continue our thanksgiving after Mass in the morning and to participate in more of the liturgical prayer of the Church.
To whet your appetite, here is the hymn for Vespers on Sundays after Epiphany and after Pentecost, Lucis Creator Optime. Written by Pope St Gregory the Great in the second half of the 6th century, this hymn speaks of the first day of creation with the Vespers hymns for the rest of the week following likewise.Continue reading “Lucis Creator Optime, Sunday Vespers”
