Thursday the 15th September: Following the Music Conference at St Aloysius’, Glasgow last week, the first of a series of rehearsals of music for the new Missal will take place in St Simon’s, Partick, next Thursday the 15th September from 7.15 finishing with tea etc at 8.50. The session will involve the rehearsal of a few Mass settings to enable parishes to choose what they think most appropriate for their situation at present, and material will be provided. Apart from a choice of music for the choir and congregation we also hope to spend a little time on the Preface Dialogue and the Preface as it might be sung on special occasions by the priests.

The Archdiocesan Music Committee was pleased at the attendance at St Aloysius on the 27th August and at the interest shown in further musical events.
Other rehearsals are planned to be based so far on St Mary’s, Calton, St Ninian’s, Kirkintilloch, and St Stephen’s Dalmuir.
St Leo’s choir meets on Monday evenings in St Leo’s house and visitors are welcome to join us at present as we devote most of our rehearsal to the music of the new Missal.

Monday 19th and 26th September: 7.00 – 8.00: St Leo’s choir will welcome guests to their rehearsal for the new Missal in St Leo’s, Dumbreck.
