St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat and Chant Courses

St Catherine's Trust is having its annual Family Retreat 26th-29th March (Friday to Sunday); the prices and the schedule are designed to make it possible for parents to attend with children of all ages.

See the St Catherine's Trust website for full details. I put a report about last year's here.

This year, for the first time, there will be a Chant course running alongside the Retreat. Nick Gale, Director of Music at St George's Cathedral in Southwark, will be leading the course, which will work with the music of the liturgies taking place during the Retreat: Sung Mass each day, Vespers, Compline etc.. This is open to men and boys over 16 who have 'at least some' experience of chant. There are details on the SCT site and also on my Oxford blog here. To my knowledge there has never been anything like this in the UK in recent years; please help to make it a success.

See the same post on my Oxford blog for details of a one-day Chant Training Day with Philip Duffy, for Saturday 25th May, in Oxford.
