Music List

This page contains information on music that has been sung recently, and a provisional list of the music that will be sung at St Bride’s. More information will be added to the page in due course. The music for services is also listed in the rear pages of The Oystercatcher every month – click here.

As well as singing the Sunday morning Mass settings, Psalms (to Anglican chant) and motets, the choir of St Bride’s is one of very few choirs to sing the weekly Mass Propers for the Liturgical Year from the English Gradual (Introit, Gradual, Alleluia/Tract, Offertory and Communion). These are settings of the Psalms and other texts from the Scriptures, using beautiful plainsong. A cantor and the choir take turns to sing the various parts of the text, in a responsorial style. This runs as a thread through the Choral Eucharist every Sunday morning, and provides a meditative backdrop to our worship.
