This just came in from Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales. Matthew Schellhorn, a professional musician very active in promoting the traditional liturgy in England, has recently created a prize for a new composition, for a ‘Latin Eucharistic text’.
I’m delighted to announce that the Latin Mass Society is supporting the Schellhorn Prize. This will be awarded to the best ‘piece for a cappella SATB choir using any Latin Eucharistic text’ submitted, between now and Ash Wednesday of next year (18th February), by a composer no older than 26 at the closing date. The prize is £500, and the piece will be performed as part of the Latin Mass Society's Easter Triduum liturgies in the year it is submitted.Full details are here.
