Latin Vespers

October 19, 2009

ChantFor the last three weeks we have been singing Sunday Vespers and Benediction in St Clement’s totally in Latin. We have had only a dozen or so people at Vespers on most Sundays in the last year, so I hope the new format may appeal to a wider constituency. Our aim for the future is to encourage some singers to form a schola to sing these services.

The above paragraph may well cause tree-hugging chorus loving nuns on guitars to rub their eyes in disbelief, but I have detected a love of the old traditional ways among quite a lot of young people at our local universities who come to our great Feasts, and a 3 0’clock service in Latin may well attract such. Of course we will have to make it better known, and that is always a challenge.
