Solemn High Mass
Music: Gounod - Messe solennelle de Ste Cécile
Handel - Hallelujah Chorus
Easter at St Bart's is truly magnificent.
Liturgy, music and preaching combine to present an unforgettable spiritual experience.
It is a long-established tradition that Gounod's wonderful setting of the Mass is sung by the choir with a professional orchestra drawn from local musicians.
This has been done without exception since the early 1890s.
Do come and join us for this unique occasion.
In view of the prior rehearsal that is necessary for the 11am High Mass, there will not be a celebration of the Family Mass at 9.30.
