Solemn Dominican Requiem in NYC, November 13th

A Solemn Requiem in the Dominican Rite, followed by Absolution at the catafalque, will be offered at the church of St Vincent Ferrer in New York City on Wednesday, November 13th at 7 p.m., with a reception afterwards in the parish hall. Fr Sebastian White O.P. will be the celebrant and homilist; the parish’s Schola Cantorum, directed by James Wetzel, will sing the Missa pro defunctis by Italian Baroque composer Francesco Cavalli (1602-1676). The church is located at 869 Lexington Avenue at 66th Street.

A Missa Cantata in the Dominican Rite will also be offered on Friday, November 15th, at 7 p.m. for the feast of St Albert the Great, with the Missa Sancti Wilhelmi devotio by John Taverner (c. 1490-1545).

In the traditional Dominican liturgical calendar, November 13th is the anniversary of All Deceased Friars and Sisters of the Order. This Requiem is sponsored by the Catholic Artists Society, the New York Purgatorial Society, and the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny, and is part of the monthly schedule of Requiem Masses at St. Vincent’s offered by the NYPS.
