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.
A straightforward video post today. Here is the beautiful Credo IV performed by Schola Una Voce a few months ago. I first heard this setting of the creed in an album recorded by Westminster Cathedral Choir and particularly loved the organ accompaniment. There is just something heavenly about a major subdominant in mode I!
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!
For those who are planning to attend the Pontifical High Mass at the Throne offered by Cardinal Burke on the 14th, here is something from his last visit to whet your appetite!

I am delighted to be directing the music once again for a Pontifical High Mass offered by His Eminence Cardinal Burke on 14th September at Immaculate Heart Church, Balornock.
