Missa Cantata at Devizes


Missa Cantata

Devizes
every 2nd Sunday of the month at 12.15pm.
If you are interested in singing in our small Schola,
please arrive before Mass, at 11.45am,
for a rehearsal in the choir loft.


Knowledge of the Missa de Angelis would be most helpful
as would the Marian antiphon of the season.
