Christmas Octave of Sung and Solemn Masses in St. Louis — December 25 through January 1

In what may well be a first at the diocesan level, the Oratory of Sts. Gregory and Augustine in St. Louis, Missouri, will be offering Solemn High Mass or Missa Cantata every day of the Christmas octave, as indicated in the poster below.

These special Masses will be added to the normal schedule of low Masses at the oratory.

The sacred music will be sung by both the oratory choir and the Schola of St. Hugh. It will include ordinaries by Victoria and Byrd and little heard chant ordinaries III and V. Other selections include Palestrina, Marenzio, Bach, Daquin, and Handel.

The oratory has been functioning at St. Luke Parish in Richmond Heights since July 1, 2018.
