Dr. Mary Berry RIP

Unfortunately I have been rather behind on the news! I have heard that Dr. Mary Berry, Fellow and Director of Studies in Music at Girton and Newnham Colleges in the University of Cambridge, and the founder and director of the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, has gone to her eternal reward.

She was a great authority on the Gregorian chant and has done much to keep it alive in the liturgy when it all but seemed doomed to disappear. May she and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
