2006 CIEL Footage of the Pontifical Mass in Merton College, Oxford

Here is one for the "better late than never" file. Some of you will no doubt recall the CIEL conference in Oxford from 2006. Various reports appeared and a few videos, including here, but nothing from the concluding Solemn Pontifical Mass in Merton College chapel was shown beyond stills. That is now remedied.

(As an aside, what is interesting to consider is that when this pontifical Mass occurred, there was not yet any motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum -- it was as yet only still "rumoured", albeit with substance -- and these liturgical books were still understood as requiring an indult. How strange it now seems to think back on these times.)
