As this is our first ever ATB visit more time has been put aside for rehearsal than is normal. It is likely that the Saturday rehearsal time will be reduced on the day.

1500-1600 Rehearsal (Gardiner Room) - for those singing on Saturday only
1615-1715 Run through in stalls
0915-1000 Run through in stalls
1030-1145 Cathedral Eucharist
1400-1445 Run through in stalls
Please note: we are rehearsing in the Gardiner Room in St Martin's House. St Martin's House is the building to the west of the cathedral.
The below programme has now been agreed with the Cathedral.
Sunday Cathedral Eucharist
- Matthew Martin, The Oratory Mass
- Morley, Haec dies
You will be emailed the following music that you will need to print off at home and bring with you:
- Farrell - Alleluia
- Vidi aquam
Where available the music above is linked to online scores. You are reminded that no time will be spent in rehearsal note bashing music made available in advance.
The cathedral has a system to provide discounted parking in the NCP car park at the Holiday Inn on St Nicholas Circle, a short walk from the cathedral. The parking normally costs £20 per day, but this will cost £4 per day.
Instructions for parking at NCP St Nicholas Circle, LE1 4LF
To use this offer, please park at the NCP St Nicholas Circle car park on arrival. When you arrive at the first rehearsal, you will be asked to pay the £4/day and will be given a ticket. To confirm, you can park before picking up the ticket.
To use the ticket, you drive up to the exit (don’t go to the pay machines), insert the card that you got when you entered the car park, at which point the machine will tell you that you owe £X, depending on how long you’ve been there. Instead of inserting a credit or debit card for payment, insert the ticket that the cathedral provided. The machine waits just long enough for you to think that it hasn’t worked and then the barrier goes up and you can drive off. You don’t need to have the ticket before you drive into the car park. If you’re using a satnav to get to the car park, the postcode is LE1 4LF.
We have made sure we will have enough tickets. You do not need to request these in advance.
All music will be provided on the day. You will be expected to have learnt music made available in advance of the visit. No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing this music. We will spend more time looking at music introduced on the day. We regret that copyright does not always allow us to make all music available beforehand.
Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day (if you are new, please send your approx height and build to Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please wear quiet black shoes and black socks/tights as these might show under your cassock.
We do limit the number of people we can take to fit the stalls and maintain balance between the parts. Places are assigned on a first come first served basis. You will be informed if your part is over-subscribed within 48 hours of your acceptance of this invitation. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until after this time. If you need to know immediately, please contact Ed at email@example.com
We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.
