“Chants closely related to the readings should, of course, be appropriately transferred for use with these readings. For pastoral reasons also there is an option regarding the chants for the Proper of Seasons: namely, as circumstances suggest, to replace the text proper to a day with another text belonging to the same season.”
— Ordo Cantus Missae (1971)

CHARLES COLE began his musical training as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral. He went on to win a major music scholarship to Ampleforth and organ scholarships at Exeter College, Oxford and Westminster Cathedral. He is Assistant Director of Music at the London’s Brompton Oratory where he directs the London Oratory Junior Choir. Since 2012 he has been the Director of the Schola Cantorum of the London Oratory School, a world-famous boys’ choir which sings the Vigil Mass at the London Oratory every Saturday. Recent concerts include Bach’s Saint John Passion, Monteverdi’s Vespers, and a joint performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Mass In B Minor with the Choir of Westminster Cathedral.

Maestro Charles Cole says: “If you set the bar low, a boy will crawl underneath it—but if you set the bar high, he will leap over it.”
