Missa Cantata, Mobile, Alabama

It only happens once each year so it is worth paying close attention. An extraordinary form Missa Cantata will be sung at the Mobile Cathedral, Saturday, August 3, 2013, 7:00 p.m. It will be a Votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary (fulfills the Sunday obligation) and the celebrant is The Rev. Msgr. Stephen Martin, Vicar General and Cathedral Rector.

The choir is Musica Sacra of Mobile, and they will sing all chanted propers plus the beautiful Missa Brevis by Palestrina. For further information anyone may e-mail Sally McKenna:
