Solemn Mass of St Matthew in San Diego

Last Saturday, on the feast of St Matthew, a Solemn High Mass in the traditional was sung at St Joseph’s Cathedral, in downtown San Diego. The ordinary of the Mass was Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli, sung by the Tomas Luis de Victoria Choir of San Diego, along with motets; the complete Gregorian propers were sung by the Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego and the young men of the Benedict XVI Youth Schola, conducted by John Polhamus. The Mass was celebrated by priests of the FSSP, and served by members of Holy Martyrs Catholic Church in Murrieta, California, a church of the Anglican Ordinariate. Here are a couple of pictures and a complete video of the ceremony, thanks to Mr Robert Lionello. Ecce quam bonum et quam jucundum celebrare fratres in unum!
