Latin Choir

The Latin Schola sings the weekly Sunday Solemn Latin Mass at 6:15pm.

A wide range of music is performed, almost exclusively in Latin.  The repertoire includes a substantial amount of Gregorian Chant, polyphonic mass settings and motets by some of the great composers of sacred music – Palestrina, Victoria, Lassus, Tallis and Byrd etc.

The Latin Choir has been an important feature of parish life for some thirty years.  The choir was reconstituted and then directed from 2005-2006 by Colin Mawby KSG, a former Master of Music of Westminster Cathedral.  Many members of the choir are former university choral scholars and members sing with other renown choirs in Cambridge and London.  There is also a list of deputies who are willing to sing in the choir from time to time.  Entrance to the choir is by audition and a high standard of sight reading is required.  The choir rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 4:45 to 6:00pm.
