London Colney: Public Liturgies
In the course of the week we had either Missa Cantata or Missa Solemnis before lunch, and either Compline or Vespers in the evenings. We also had Benediction a number of times. The music was provided by Charles Finch and his Cantores Missae, who sang a number of polyphonic Masses and some Chant ones, as well as all the Chant Propers, and also provided singers for the Offices and Benediction in the evenings. The enormous organ was played by Colin Mawby, who was principally present to teach the priests the chants they need for Sung Masses.
