CIEL Conference: Sounds good

James Macmillan will be speaking on Liturgical Music pre- and post-Vatican II at the annual CIEL One-day Conference on Saturday, 29 May at 2.30pm in St Wilfrid's Hall at the London Oratory. Cost is £5.

There isan EF High Mass in the morning at 11 am celebrated by the Actor [Postulastor] for the cause of John Henry Newman, Fr Richard Duffield Cong. Orat., who will also speak at the Conference. The music promises to be superb.

This an event I would like to attend but Saturday is difficult and our wedding season begins on the 29th, James MacMillan always has something worthwhile to say.

I think we might have different needs, coming as we do from such different positions!
