LMS London events and Masses at Corpus Christi Maiden Lane


As I have mentioned before that the Sung Masses have recommenced under professional leadership on Mondays at Corpus Christi Maiden Lane, which is a Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament (like SS Peter & Paul and St Philomena in New Brighton, which is looked after by the ICKSP). Another, a Requiem, will take place this evening, for the repose of Fr Wilfrid Elkin who died in March. It is being accompanied by the new polyphonic consort with Victoria's setting, a fitting tribute to a lovely priest who did so much to support tradition.

Enquire about joining the singing of polyphony or the chant on Mondays at Maiden Lane by emailing; more info here.


Last Friday I attended (and photographed) an additional, High, Mass of Requiem there for all those who died in the epidemic, organised by the parish itself. It was celebrated by Fr Alan Robinson, Rector of the Shrine, and accompanied by the Choir of Spanish Place, who sang Anerio's Requiem (with the Dies Irae sung to chant) and the Nanino Gradual and Tract.

There is a lot going on in London once again, thanks be to God, and you can keep up with events through the LMS London monthly newsletter: see the most recent one here and subscribe here.


This Friday there will be the first of a new series of our long-interrupted Iota Unum talks, by James Bogle on Bl Charles of Austria. The talks take place in the basement of Our Lady of the Assumption, Warwick Street: please come to the 24 Golden Square entrance (W1F 9JR), 6:30pm for 7pm. (Full list of confirmed talks and dates here.)

This Saturday there will be Server training and Vestment Mending in St James' Spanish Place. Book the server training, organised by the Society of St Tarcisius, here (and more info); email the Guild of St Clare ( if you'd like to join the vestment mending. Previous experience is not required! There is something that everyone can do, and there is masses of space and plenty of things to learn.

  1. For those of us who missed the Mass & were friends of Fr Elkin is there any proposal to show a video on the LMS site? I only got the link at 22.42 today from Leo Darroch.
