Compline from the Little Office of BVM
Much of our choir’s work is singing the music of the Mass, but there is a whole lot of liturgical music for the Divine Office too. After an evening’s choir practice, it’s good to finish with Compline. The Little Office is pretty easy to work out - even all sung in Latin.
21st Sunday after Pentecost
Going with the plan for a sung Mass on the third Sunday of the month, our next Sung Mass is on the 21st of October, the 21st Sunday after Pentecost.

They weren’t too bad for cheap go at making hard cover books. Now the pages are falling out here and there and people have suggested we have a working bee to fix them up. We could carefully glue the pages back in with PVA glue, but there may be a better way… getting a new edition printed in paperback!
