Another successful Oxford Pilgrimage, thanks to the Dominican community and some hardy pilgrims, willing to run the gauntlet of tourists, shoppers and students to retrace the steps of the martyrs, dragged on hurdles from the Bocardo prison (next to St Michael's at the North Gate in Cornmarket) to Hangman's Corner, the far end of Holywell Street. It was particularly good to see plenty of students this year.

Fr Gregory Pearson OP was celebrant; Br Bede Mullens OP deacon, Br John Peter Anderson OP was subdeacon. Mass was accompanied by the Schola Abelis (Dominican chant) and the Newman Consort (polyphony: Byrd's Mass for Four Voices, plus motets by Byrd and Sheppard). We had a dozen singers in the 'Tribune', the choir lost, of the Priory Church.
