Which priest sang the Mass for the Feast of Saint Margaret? The whole Mass was beautiful - I'd never heard a whole mass sung before. Prayers for your good work!

The celebrant was Fr Gerry Byrne, a priest of the Archdiocese of Glasgow and, dare I say it, the champion of chant in Scotland.

The homilist was Fr Paul Francis Spencer CP from St Gabriel's, Prestonpans.

Many thanks for your support and prayers!

Thanks for letting me know. As it turns out, I found out today anyway as I went to a talk on sacred music over at Holy Cross and it was Fr Byrne who gave it. I just hope people take on board what he said!
