Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos at Westminster Cathedral

The President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, will be at Westminster Cathedral today to celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass in the usus antiquior. The Mass will take place in the afternoon (GMT) and a reader informs me that the music will be as follows:

Ecce Sacerdos Magnus, Elgar
Missa Sacerdos et Pontifex, Palestrina
O doctor optime, Palestrina
Ave verum corpus, Byrd

In addition, the Hermeneutic of Continuity has this photo from a dinner hosted Friday evening, and also gives an account of the Cardinal's remarks.

It goes without saying that the NLM will endeavour to bring you images from the event -- and indeed, if any reader is there and has photos, please do send them our way.
