GAUDETE! A Mass Setting
10:00 to 13:00 - November 10, 2023
The Cathedral Church of St. Mary, Clayton Street West, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 5HH

Will Todd's Gaudete! is having it's first public use at the Catholic Leaders and Clergy Conference at the Cathedral Church  of St. Mary in Newcastle on November 10th 2023.

The Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust writes:

"Over the past year we have been on a fantastic journey working with our schools and local communities writing a Mass Setting, inspired by them, that can be used by both our schools and our parishes.

We wanted to create a Mass Setting that our pupils and our communities had the opportunity to contribute to so that it was both inclusive and familiar. Helping everyone join together, and feel at home during this Sacrament.

We worked with acclaimed composter Will Todd and the National Liturgy Office and we were delighted when our new Mass Setting was approved by the National Liturgy Office. We shared an exclusive special preview with our key stakeholders in July 2023.

The first public use of the Mass Setting will be at the Catholic Leaders and Clergy Conference at Newcastle Cathedral on Friday 10 November 2023.

Following this we will be including excerpts from our Mass Setting in our performance of Faith: A Celebration at Rainton Arena on Thursday 23 November 2023.

All our schools and parishes will be provided with free access to the finished musical score to use any versions or parts of Gaudete they wish in their Mass Setting."
