Solemn Requiem in St. Agnes, New York

I have been intending to share this, but had neglected to date. It is from the Solemn Requiem Mass which was held on November 29th for the Catholic Artists Society and New York Purgatorial Society at St. Agnes Church in New York City.

The Mass was offered for the departed souls of family members, friends and fellow artists by Father Justin Wylie (Archdiocese of Johannesburg, South Africa). The setting for the Mass was Gabriel Fauré's Requiem, Opus 48, sung by the Schola Cantorum of St. Agnes, led by James Wetzel.

The following film was made for the Society by Jim Morlino of Navis Pictures.

Here, too, are a few photos which were taken by Stuart Chessman of the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny in Norwalk, Connecticut.
