Sunday Missa Cantata in Oxford

IMG_8349 On Sunday Fr John Saward celebrated a Missa Cantata at 12 noon in SS Gregory and Augustine's in the Woodstock Road. Although we are blessed with many traditional Masses in and around Oxford, a Sung Mass on a Sunday is rare, and Fr Saward is now celebrating one each month.

The Mass was accompanied by the Schola Abelis, with polyphony: Cristobal de Morales's five-part  Missa L'Homme Armee (the Armed Man).


The next one will be on the Fourth Sunday of Advent, 18th December, again at 12 noon. IMG_8355
