One of the sad realities of life is that we cannot always do everything we eagerly want to do. This was my feeling earlier this month regarding the Monastic Chant Forum at Quarr Abbey, on the Isle of Wight.
Having stayed at Quarr and its neighboring St. Cecilia’s throughout last Lent, I can only imagine how the great Quarr church must have resounded with the music of this choir of talented chanters, both monastics and lay.
