Saturday 25 February, 2017 Save the date!

The DCMA invites you to a music workshop led by Paul Berry, Director of Music at St. Mary’s RC Church, Hexham.

Following a series of very successful workshops including: Paul Inwood – A walk through the new Mass Translation in 2013; Lent/Easter workshop, led by Fr. Peter Carr and Philip Robinson at St. Mary’s Cathedral in April 2014, and Martin Foster’s Advent workshop in November 2015, the DCMA committee has asked Paul Berry, a gifted and talented liturgist and musician to lead a day for both instrumentalists and singers in February 2017. The focus of the day will be Holy Week, with three sessions centred around the Easter Triduum. Instrumentalists are welcome to bring their instruments and we hope that choirs will collectively participate in the day.

The workshop will be held at St. Mary’s RC Church, Hexham, on Saturday 25 Februdcma-paul-berry-publicity-2ary, starting at 10:30am, and finishing with Mass at 4:00pm. There is also the possibility of a guided tour of Hexham Abbey in the extended lunch break. More details of the day soon on

The day is open to anybody who is interested in liturgical music, whether it be for schools or parishes. Should you wish to attend the session, then you are encouraged to email the Chairperson our very own Alison Purvis at so that numbers for the day can be ascertained and sufficient copies of music can be brought along. Why not drop in to the session and meet new people across the Diocese facing the same musical challenges that you are?! Enjoy a choir day out with fellow singers and musicians.
