The Gregorian Chant Network at the London Oratory

Yesterday the Gregorian Chant Network, which encompasses virtually the entire neume singing world from the Orkneys down to Brighton, met at the London Oratory for their Biennial meetup.

This time l am going to leave it to Leutgeb at Bara Brith to summarise the day and l’ll just put up some pictures.

It was amazing what a difference two years can make. At the first meeting, there were only two women and the overall atmosphere felt determinedly restrained. This time, it was fun, lively, a few more women and lots of friends to catch up with and to make. It was great to meet Ben from Orkney Chant and Ian from Faversham who has kindly sent me music on occasions and to swop good and bad stories about running choirs and teaching chant.  Many thanks to Joseph Shaw for organising such a fantastic day.
