An incomplete page in Bodleian MS e Mus. 126, The York Processional. See gallery for more
A LABOUR of love for medieval music and liturgy by Andrew A. Horsman, The York Processional (978-0-9545531-4-2) is an edition of Bodleian MS e Mus. 126, which includes not only a historical introduction and critical notes, but also a full performing edition in parallel versions so that it can be sung in Latin or English (performers will need to be able to read plainsong notation). The Processional, which predates 1389, was made for a parish church in the diocese of York (probably Thornton-in-Craven), and is a rare survival of the musical catastrophe of 1550. Liturgies from the Use of York (this is Volume 1 of a series) have been sung at All Saints’, North Street, in the city during Dr Horsman’s ministry there over the past 30 years. The book is available from The Rector and Churchwardens of All Saints’, North Street, York YO1 6JD, for £25 plus £4 p&p; www.allsaints-northstreet.org.uk. GP

The secular world has moved away from autocratic styles. Bishops would do well to taken note, says Eve Poole
We are looking for an energetic, prayerful priest with a mature spirituality to assist the Rector, wardens and PCC in exploring the meaning of Christ’s gospel in this complex environment as we make our way through the pandemic.
The North Wingfield Team, a single parish of five churches and one community centre in North-East Derbyshire, is praying for an evangelical, spirit-filled and prayerful priest to be our new Rector-in-Charge. We are committed to mission and reaching out to a growing community, and we need a strategic and collaborative team leader who will encourage us in our own vocations and ministries and lead us through change to a new and exciting time in our church lives.
These are exciting times in the Diocese of Llandaff. Our five-year vision ‘Where Faith Matters’ is becoming reality.
