Successful Chant Training Weekend


This year's Chant Weekend was led by Chris Hodkinson of the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, and Matthew Ward of Mayfield School. It is sponsored by the Latin Mass Society.


Some of the more experienced singers were able to practice conducting, and took it in turns to conduct in the final Mass of the weekend.
