Mary Berry

Mary Berry, who died on 1st May, is one of a small group of individuals who worked tirelessly to promote Gregorian Chant when it was out of favour with the church. This kept the flame alight during a bleak period, pending the turn of the tide. Those whom she taught are now able to pass their knowledge on to the next generation.

In paradisum deducant te angeli,
in tuo adventu suscipiuant te martyres.
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat,
et com Lazaro quondam paupere
aeternam habeas requiem.
