St Philip's Day at the Oxford Oratory

St Philip's Day Mass at the Oxford Oratory was celebrated by the Rt. Rev. Dom. Cuthbert Brogan OSB, Abbot of Farnborough. The mass setting was Missa Vestiva i Colli by Ruggiero Giovanelli.

During the Offertory, the choir sang a new setting of the prayer of Baronius, 'Respice de cælo Sancte Pater' by John Caldwell, former professor of music at the University and a regular parishioner, who composed it as a gift to the Oratory. More photographs and the text of the Abbot's sermon are available on the Oxford Oratory's website. (Photos: Tessa Caldecott)
