Two Events...

On Friday, March 25th we shall mark The Annunciation with a High Mass at 6.30 pm when the music will be Missa de Beata Virgine by the 16th century Spanish composer Cristobal de Morales and William Byrd’s Propers for this feast. If you are not celebrating this occasion in your own church, you would be most welcome to join us at St Magnus the Martyr.

This year our Patronal Festival (April 16th) falls on the Saturday before Palm Sunday, and although this is a busy liturgical time for us all, we shall celebrate the day with a High Mass at 12.30 p.m. to which we hope you can come. The mass setting will be by the French composer Marc de Ranse (1881 – 1951), his Messe en l’honneur du pieux Roi Saint Louis (1924)

Both these celebrations will be followed by quality refreshments, to which all are welcome.

  1. Easter Vigil at 11am! Excellent stuff.

  2. I'm very sad to say that I will be in Manchester for St Magnus's day, and should probably attend the Annunciation at Marble Arch, as I have been asked to do so.

  3. Greetings!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. I'm an Anglo-Catholic in the United States and I long for such high liturgy here in the States!

    Thanks again.
