Music at St Walburge’s Shrine

Sacred music is central to the liturgical life of The Shrine of St Walburge. The ancient melodies of Gregorian chant take pride of place here. As an integral part of the extraordinary form of the Roman rite, this chant gives worshippers a tangible sense of their heavenly family, the Church Triumphant, and the countless saints and faithful who, throughout the millennia, have heard and sung the same sublime patterns of notes that illuminate the same solemn, joyful and moving words of scripture and the church’s ancient liturgical poetry.

To compliment the Gregorian chant, the choir of St Walburge’s is building a repertoire of sacred motets and hymns, polyphonic and homophonic, for two, three, or four voices, accompanied by organ but often unaccompanied, to further turn our minds and hearts toward prayerful worship of the Trinity in Holy Mass.

If you are interested in joining the choir, we would be very happy to hear from you.
