A Benedictine Day with the monks of Downside Abbey


Gregorian chant has lain at the heart of church music for centuries. This practical workshop offers a rare opportunity to learn how to read the notation and perform the psalms in free rhythm with Downside Abbey’s own choir master, Father Anselm Brumwell. He’ll also explore the origins and practise of the daily offices. Delve into the monk’s enormous repertoire and discover how the daily music changes with the events in the christian year. All singers welcome.


For the first time in their 250-year history, the monks of Downside Abbey in Somerset will sing their divine offices away from the abbey, at Kings Place and a nearby church. Beginning the day with a Mass and Lauds in St James’s, Spanish Place, Marylebone, they will arrive in time to sing Midday Office, Vespers and Compline in the public spaces of Kings Place.

There will also be an exhibition of important artefacts from the abbey related to its musical heritage, a WORKSHOP (book below) with Musical Director Father Anselm Brumwell on the singing of plainsong and a pre-concert event in which Father Anselm Brumwell, in conversation with Harry Christophers, will explain how this hugely influential tradition is maintained and how it has fed into and enriched the European sacred music canon.
