Brinkburn

This Saturday there will be a Solemn High Mass at Brinkburn priory in Northumberland at 12 noon. Music will be provided by the Schola Borealis, the Rudgate Singers (who will be singing a Mass by Lotti and motet by Scarlatti) and organist Peter Locke. The celebrant will be Fr Emerson FSSP and the deacon and subdeacon will also be from the FSSP. This is normally a highlight of the year for the Extraordinary Form in the North East. I`m looking forward to not being the celebrant or a sacred minister for a change and just taking it all in.

I hope it goes well, Father, and that you also get good enough weather for a picnic.

Do you use the organ whilst you're there? It was a bit of a beast during the Festival this year...

Fr Michael Brown said...

Yes, Peter Locke, who gave a recital at St George`s, Cullercoats last Saturday night, will be playing.

Augustine said...

Ah, sounds good. Sadly I can't be there as I'm up at Alnham this weekend with school, but I hope all goes well.

Fr Michael Brown said...

It should be good but you are not the only one, Augustine, who is unable to attend.

All I can say is 'Roll on next year!'

We may have the Tenors by then to sing the Tallis Mass that was meant for today. It's a shame that only one was available this weekend, hence the Lotti Mass, which to be fair worked very well.

Don't normally indulge in self publicity, but you may like to see some pictures from this afternoon. They're at http://rudgateramblings.blogspot.com/2009/09/brinkburn-2009.html
