Tutorial Video Mentions

A note came into the NLM yesterday morning about a series of usus antiquior tutorial videos from Europe which are available online and which have now been translated into English.

Here is a sample.

All Souls Day and the Requiem

In a related matter, a few priests have contacted the NLM about their desire to celebrate the All Souls Day Mass of Nov. 2nd in the usus antiquior.

Accordingly, I would also remind priests and others who are to be involved in these ceremonies, that Sancta Missa, the website of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, have up two videos which will be helpful for your preparations; the Sung Requiem Mass with Absolution at the Catafalque and also the Solemn Requiem Mass of All Souls Day.

While not tutorial vidoes in the sense of the first video (i.e. with commentary), watching these will certainly give you a good sense of the various liturgical elements, including how to setup the catafalque, where, and also will give you some sense of the ceremonies themselves.
