Solemn Requiem with Music by Morales

Last Saturday, the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco held a solemn Requiem Mass and Absolution at the Holy Cross Mausoleum, which is located in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, California; this cemetery is run by the Archdiocese of San Francisco, and several of the archbishops are buried in the mausoleum. The schola beautifully sang Cristobal de Morales’ “Missa Pro Defunctis a 5”, and the “Miserere” of Gregorio Allegri in the unadorned “original” setting at Communion. We are happy to share the following video of the complete ceremony, which began with a brief sermon, and several pictures.

Tradition will always be for the young!
