The UK Gregorian Chant Network

I had somehow missed the news of this interesting event: the founding of the Gregorian Chant Network in the UK to "coordinate the promotion of Gregorian Chant in the Catholic liturgy."

The meeting was attended by members of the Latin Mass Society, Una Voce Scotland, the Association for Latin Liturgy, the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, a number of chant teachers and experts, and the Directors of a score of Gregorian Chant scholas from all over the country, 36 people in all. The meeting concluded with First Vespers of Septagesima Sunday in the Little Oratory, led by Fr Anthony Alexander.
