About the event
All are invited to attend our second major Vespers according to the Use of Sarum: the rite of the Catholic Church in England before the Reformation. This year's Sarum Vespers will take place at the Princeton University Chapel, with the assistance of the UK early music chamber choir GALLICANTUS.
Vespers begin at 7pm on Friday, March 1, 2024 (First Vespers of St. Chad of Mercia), followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Music will include the Sarum Litany of Saints, "O Sacrum Convivium" by Thomas Tallis, and works of other pre-Reformation masters of music.
All are additionally welcome to attend a brief lecture on the Use of Sarum in the chapel before Vespers, at 6pm.
