What's on

Solemn Mass

Every Sunday at for 1 hour
St Matthew Kensington Olympia
Sinclair Road, W14 0LP, GB

The Solemn Mass on a Sunday is the mainstay of worshiping life with music provided by the St Matthew's Schola Cantorum, an outstanding voluntary choir. Our musical offering is based around congregational plainchant and polyphonic settings of the Mass sung by the choir and a vital element of the rich liturgical tradition at St Matthew's.

We are seeking to appoint an Alto and a Bass Choral Scholar to join with the St Matthew's high standard octet, the Schola Cantorum, to sing at the weekly Sunday Mass and for major feast days throughout the year
