Choral Music Schedule, 2018-2019

The Choir of Saint Ignatius of Antioch

The Rev’d Dr Andrew C. Blume, Rector

Mr James Kennerley, MA, MMUS, FRCO, Organist and Choirmaster

 

The choir of Saint Ignatius, directed by James Kennerley, is a professional ensemble with a core of eight voices, expanding to around sixteen for the larger repertoire. The choir is one of the finest of its type and continues the tradition of excellent music-making that has defined worship at Saint Ignatius for over 140 years. The choral repertoire is drawn primarily from the late medieval and Renaissance periods, as well as from the nineteenth– and twentieth–century Anglican choral tradition. The splendid acoustics of the church make for an unparalleled setting for performing choral music.

All services are Solemn Masses beginning at 11 A.M. unless otherwise noted. On weekdays, the organ prelude begins at 6:45 P.M.

The choral services consist of congregational hymns drawn from the great corpus of Anglican hymnody represented primarily in the English Hymnal, and the Hymnals 1940 and 1983. The choir also performs a setting of the Mass Ordinary (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Bendictus, Agnus Dei). The minor propers at Solemn Mass on Sundays and Major Feasts are from the Graduale Romanum and sung in Latin to the traditional Gregorian plainsong chants. At Sung Mass on summer Sundays and on certain Feasts during the year, the minor propers are adapted from The English Gradual and sung in English. The Latin phrase following the title of each Sunday or Feast is the incipit (the first word or words) of the introit traditionally appointed to be sung on that day. Holy Days were often known and referred to in this way.
