Today I had a request from the leader of our choir for me to celebrate Candlemas in the Extraordinary Form, she wants a Missa Cantata. I have never celebrated a sung Mass, can anyone suggest online resources?
I know there are two possible options, with, or without incense, I think we might have to go with the "without" option as we only have two servers, of course it would be very good to celebrate a High Mass if I could get a deacon and sub-deacon, and servers. I know a prelate who would be only too happy to come and celebrate Pontifical High Mass at the drop of a mitre but we will need to do something with altar first.
The photographs are from our Extraordinary Form Epiphany Mass, taken by John Burke.
It was at 10am in the morning, about 40 people came but the people who actually ask for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite are the younger members of our congregation who are working during the day.
I celebrate the old Mass on the third Sunday of each month and we will restart a Friday evening Mass the week after next.
