Last year, the Durban Chamber Choir performed the stunning Monteverdi Mass for four voices as a concert piece at Emmanuel Cathedral.

They will be singing the piece liturgically within the usual 17h30 Mass on April 14 at Emmanuel Cathedral. This is a unique opportunity to hear music written almost 400 years ago used in its original context. The presider is Cardinal Napier and the idea of singing the Mass was suggested as a way to honour him.

The service is open to all with safe parking behind the Cathedral. A collection will be taken for the Napier Centre for Healing, the Cardinal's legacy project as a rehabilitation centre for street-living drug-users.
