Event Location 
St. Patrick’s Church (242 S 20th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103) 
Please join us in celebrating the end of the greater Christmas season with this once-in-a-lifetime event: solemn choral Vespers according to the medieval Use of Sarum–the regional form of the Latin Rite used in England before the Reformation. A choir of master singers from all around the region, under the direction of Peter Carter, will be assembling to render the sacred music of the psalms in Sarum chant, a collection of polyphonic works set by Thomas Tallis for Candlemas Eve, and a Magnificat written by Robert White during the brief restoration of the Sarum Use under Queen Mary I’s reign. 
The liturgy will take place at St Patrick’s Church, served by the Dominican Friars, in center city Philadelphia (242 S 20th St) on the Eve of Candlemas: Saturday, February 1 at 7pm. Event co-sponsored by the Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture. More details to come. Please direct all inquiries to James T.M. Griffin at the email address given in the flyer.
