|"Singing the Mass" Workshop 23rd Aug|
A music workshop for parish musicians, cantors, and people who enjoy singing. The event will take place in St Margaret’s Cathedral, Ayr on Saturday, 23rd August from 1.00 pm, beginning with lunch and concluding with the Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm. During the afternoon, the group will have the opportunity to prepare, in some detail, music for the evening Mass. More information and booking forms available at www.gallowaymusic.net. The Mass of Christ the Saviour by Dan Schutte will be taught in SATB parts and used at Mass. It is then hoped that many participants will travel to Whithorn on Sunday, 31st August to lead the music at the annual pilgrimage Mass at St Ninian’s Cave.
