All Souls Day from the Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz, Austria

The following video comes from the Cistercian Abbey of Heilgenkreuz in Austria from All Souls Day. The liturgy was celebrated in accordance with the modern liturgical books.

After watching the procession and listening to the Introit chant, non-German speaking readers may wish to skip ahead to the 3:10 mark where you will see the monastic community processing through the cloister and to the graves of their departed brethren.
